New Track: Prozak 

Prozak, the homegrown indie rapper from Saginaw, has collaborated with Twiztid – the result of which is this incredible track (the album drops on 4/24), "Line In The Middle." When asked what the inspiration for the song was, Prozak replied: "The meaning and the inspiration comes from this: As you walk through a cemetery, you can't help but notice the engravings on the stones. All of them have the year of birth and the year of death. However, the MOST important part is the little line in the middle. That line is all the experiences and every single thing that person has ever done and said. Their LIFE'S work summed up in a dash." Expect the album to be just as deep.

Prozak took a few minutes out of his busy schedule to answer some of our questions.

Can you tell us what the song "Line In The Middle" is about and where the inspiration for the song comes from?

Prozak: The meaning and the inspiration comes from this: As you walk through a cemetery, you can't help but notice the engravings on the stones. All of them have the year of birth & the year of death. However, the MOST important part is the little line in the middle. That line is all the experiences and every single thing that person has ever done and said. Their LIFES work summed up in a dash.

When did you first meet Twiztid and how did the collaboration with them for this album come about?

Prozak: I met Twiztid around 1998.. Been listening to their work since the very early days of their career. Later, I was fortunate enough to record and tour with them.. Several times now. Amazing artists, performers and people.

Juggalos are all over the Michigan, and are often misunderstood. Can you remember your first experience with the Juggalo scene and what's your take on them now? Have Juggalos helped Prozak establish a fan base?

Prozak: Juggalo's are super misunderstood! They are some of the most compassionate & amazing people. Main stream pop culture hipsters fear them because they don't understand them. I have been fortunate enough to tour with Psychopathic Records many times and have been a supporter of Insane Clown Posse For years. I GET IT! It's an amazing network of people who care about eachother world-wide. You can call it a gang.. I call it a family... and yes, Juggalos have helped my career much.. Id like to thank them and ALL of Psychopathic Records for the opportunities over the years.

You are out on the road now on the Hostile Takeover Tour with Tech N9ne and Machine Gun Kelly. What's it like being a part of such an enormous hip-hop tour and how has it been so far?

Prozak: It is amazing.. Nearly a hundred shows, few days off.. Sold out crowds. Man, it's really a blessing to do this.

The Detroit area has always had a vibrant hip-hop scene. What are some of your favorite experiences with the scene here and what is your take on this hip-hop scene here today?

Prozak: Man, Detroit.. Flint, Saginaw.. So much history in hiphop! Favorite memories? Insane Clown Posse selling out the State Theatre in 1995, before they were even national!! Such an incredible show.. (jokers gallery show).. Other memories, meeting Eminem outside a PSY show in Roseville slanging cassettes.. All the nights at ST. Andrews.. So Many.

Will there be a follow-up to your A Haunting on Hamilton Street horror film? If so what can fans expect and what kind of time frame are you looking at?

Prozak: Haunting 2 is already out! Ahauntingonhamiltonstreet.com - 2 more in post right now... Bone chilling paranormal activity, shot right here in the mitten!

What can fans expect when they pick-up your new album "Paranormal" on April 24th?

Prozak: Lyrics.. Depth, replay value.. Politically charged hip-hop hardcore.. So much more. Very diverse!
