Philadelphia Lyricist D Prime 215 teams up with Pryme Mega to release “Black Authentic” in time for Juneteenth 2022.
This is from their upcoming EP “King’s Road” which is slated for a Summer 2022 release.
D Prime 215 & Pryme Mega link with Rekkless Life Films to bring their Unapologetically & Positively Black vision to life in the Official Music Video for “Black Authentic.”
“In the vein of James Brown’s “Say it Loud, I’m Black & I’m Proud” Pryme Mega & Myself set out to create a Positive Pro Black record in a Unapologetic fashion.
“Black Authentic” is all about positivity in an uncompromising form when it comes to Black Folk & Black Culture.
All too often we see pushes for “acceptable” Blackness which is seemingly bogged down by respectability politics to come across as “safe.”
While this record isn’t intended to be disruptive for sport, Pryme & I didn’t pull any punches.”

In the English language, the word “Prime” is defined as “of first importance”.
One could certainly say that Philadelphian emcee D Prime 215 has christened himself appropriately, as hip-hop has been of first importance in this young man’s life since he picked up a pad and pen in 2009.
You can hear the warm, “golden era” sounds of J Dilla, A Tribe Called Quest and hometown heroes The Roots pulsing through his music, but with an updated, current twist.
Prime’s held his own on wax with underground veterans like Reef the Lost Cauze, Hezekiah and Has-Lo, and shared the stage with heavyweight names such as Torae and Marco Polo.
His approach is straightforward, his words honest, and his work ethic diligent.
D Prime 215 is on a mission to create songs that stand the test of time, and with his unique blend of the old and the new, he’s sure to accomplish just that.
