Witnessing by Poetic Prophet & RIFICA
While working on the Have Mercy mixtape, I knew I had to get my brother RIFICA on the project. I like his flow and wanted to work with him. I shared with him the concept for the song and told him how I wanted to do it. After going through hundreds of instrumentals, I came across the “Pandemonium” track on the MMG Self Made volume 1 album. I immediately thought, “this is it right here”.I told Rif about it, downloaded and sent him the track and then scheduled some time in the lab.
Once recorded, we both realized this could be a pretty big song, considering we used an instrumental. It became evident immediately that this would need to go on both of the projects in the making. I was working on Have Mercy da mixtape and he was working the Death of Me mixtape.
What was interesting was that after both projects released, Rif and I began to get similar reviews from people who heard the projects. Witnessing was becoming a favorite.
Long story short…we decided to give a visual. I have a video camera and some subpar experience in video editing. I do have great faith and follow through though. We met at Kitty Hollow park and recorded the footage. I prayed about it and did some editing and rest is history. I present to you, Witnessing by Poetic Prophet and RIFICA. Enjoy and comment below. Thanks!
