By  | 

Music became more than just sounds and beats for Daniel Padilla at a young age after rap was introduced to him by his friend. Perhaps, luck was on his side having grown up in a time when rap was at its peak and 2PAC was one of his inspirations for staying true to his origins no matter where he came from. 

Together with the “Screwed Up” lifestyle that Houston legend DJ Screw introduced to music, Screwed Up Click (S.U.C) was also formed. South Park Mexican, a member of the S.U.C. SPM, provided a clear view of what it’s like to be a Mexican minority in their crooked system.

The prophecy fulfilled

Da Prophet stood in the belief that there is always a hope disregarding the instance that the integrity level of man is cut down and he is using his music to edify people.
