Born in rural North Carolina in the late 70's, prolif kochise's
background is as unique as his quasi soulful, but eclectic sound. He stood out as an "A" honor-roll student-athlete in high school while being a captain on the varsity basketball team. He went on to attend an engineering college, obtaining a BS in computer science before later picking up a Master's degree in Sports Management. His wide array of education serves as a background to the intellectual perspectives he takes on a variety of topics from the moral decay in America, to the self-degradation of today's youth, to the deterioration of the family, to political unrest, to usage of the infamous "n-word", to his strong faith in Jesus Christ. Often quoted as shunning being boxed in to a genre, prolif's music straddles categorical lines of hip-hop, inspirational, conscious, spiritual, and easy listening.
