On Tuesday, September 23, 2014, Prohaize is set to release his highly anticipated mixtape, African Born, American Raised (otherwise known as ABAR). Amongst these medley of songs comes one of the project’s most unapologetically controversial singles: "Wade in the Water." Sharing a name with the most influential and timeless Negro Spiritual in African American history, this song paints vivid truths of contemporary enslavement through social, economic, and self-inflicted suppression of the black race. The soulful harmonies of singer Levii Turner in conjunction with the brilliant production by BryceJBThomas takes listeners on a journey of intimate self-reflection and inspirational change. The song exemplifies a revolution and is sure to be the pulsating anthem for all those who are ready to wade in the water and become more than what society has predestined them to be.

"So Prohaize is not just reporting on the ills of the community, he’s taking a stand and holding himself accountable for change. I think that’s pretty cool. I don’t hear many artist come from that angle"

At the early age of 6 months old, Eddie's (Prohaize) parents left him in the impoverished country of Ghana, Africa to start a better life for him and his brother in America. At the age of 2 years old, Eddie’s guardian (grandmother-on-mother’s-side) passed. At that point Eddie had nowhere else to go until he started school in a village called Abiriw. After moving to the United States at the age of 9, Eddie was exposed to a new world that inspired him to believe that dreams could come true; dreams such as being reunited with his parents and sharing inspirational immigrant stories through Hip Hop. As a hip hop artist, Eddie took on the name of “Prohaize” meaning to know how to advantageously transgress over obstacles or as he refers to it, “A Pro at getting high successfully.”
Prohaize has released materials that have opened doors such as the one on June 16th, 2012 where he opened up for Hot 107.9 FM’s Birthday Bash Concert in Philips Arena located in downtown Atlanta, GA in front of a sold out audience of over 25,000 people. This concert was headlined by T.I., Rick Ross, Kelly Rowland, Usher, Lil Wayne and more.

Since releasing his debut project Lift A Finger EP, in March 2012, Prohaize has grown exponentially in his artistry, live performance prowess and has expanded the connection he carries with his fan base. Prohaize expects to continue sharing stories of “drastic African upbringings and sociological American experiences” with the release of his African Born American Raised Mixtape due in 2014. His most recent accomplishment stems from being booked to perform in Underground Atlanta’s 2013 New Years Eve Peach Drop. Although it’s the largest New Years Eve celebration in the Southeastern US, Prohaize’s involvement aided in the success of the event reaching over 100,000 in
