Conscious Prophets are a collective of artists that everyone needs to look out for. Their newest project comes from LTP called Nirvana. With each song LTP (Longevity.Tranquility.Prosperity) paints a vivid picture of life that he’s lived through so far. The intro track, LTP states nothing but pure facts in his art and that his tape Nirvana is his journey to find his inner piece and it sets the whole vibe and mood for the thirteen track mixtape. With multiple highlights on the tape Nirvana is a project that everyone needs to listen to. It should defiantly put LTP and the Conscious Prophets on the map.
One of the first highlight tracks on the tape is Land of The Actors. With a feature Capt’n that kinda gives off a Alex Wiley vibe, LTP’s verse mixed with his voice over the beat connects so well and just gives off this vibe that just matches perfectly. LTP states in this verse that in the current society we live in everyone has two sides and they try to create a image of what they’re not. That connects so well to the overall message throughout the whole tape, and it makes it more special that the verse was written when LTP was incarcerated. LTP noticed the fakes the entire time.
The next highlight track is titled System featuring YALLAHY, produced by Mortem Beats. LTP and YALLAHY connect together to talk about the current society we currently live in and how messed up it is. From the poltical side to the racism to the violence in the city and how they connect in a full circle. Deep thoughts from the nineteen year old artist. YALLAHY’s verse was added one day he came to the studio and spit his verse, LTP connected to it so well and had to add it to his tape.
One of the final highlight tracks is City Lights. With a feature from Conscious Prophets member Big$ this tracks is just the definition of vibes. On the track the two Prophets talk about how the Conscious Prophets are up next and theyre enjoying the rise and are living life as it happens. The chemistry and these two have together on this track really proves the prophets are up next, and I can vouch for this.
LTP’s Nirvana is something that should put him and the Conscious Prophets on everyone’s radar. Check this tape out and keep a eye out for more things to be released from all the Conscious Prophets very soon.
