Esteemed Philly lyricist D Prime 215 and producer Hezekiah release visuals for “Sacred Mantra.” The single/video is the title track off Prime’s second solo EP, available everywhere music is sold.
Prime wastes no time to deliver his flow over classic boom-bap cadences blended with sharp electric tones. The simple video leaves no room for distraction, only eyes and ears digesting infectious, conscious wordplay.
Prime takes great pride in being true to oneself and “Sacred Mantra” is no exception. With his feet planted firmly, Prime’s bars run his narrative. A narrative of a man who has “no room for houses and cars, but my word is bond.”
The intricate wordsmith reminders listeners that at the end of the day our words and actions are all we have to fall back on. Prime will continue to stay true while he lives out his dreams. Watch “Sacred Mantra” (directed by JL Jupiter) and connect with D Prime 215 and Hezekiah below.

About D Prime 215
In the English language, the word “Prime” is defined as “of first importance”. One could certainly say that Philadelphian emcee D Prime 215 has christened himself appropriately, as hip-hop has been of first importance in this young man’s life since he picked up a pad and pen in 2009. You can hear the warm, “golden era” sounds of J Dilla, A Tribe Called Quest and hometown heroes The Roots pulsing through his music, but with an updated, current twist. Prime’s held his own on wax with underground veterans like Reef the Lost Cauze, Hezekiah and Has-Lo, and shared the stage with heavyweight names such as Torae and Marco Polo. His approach is straightforward, his words honest, and his work ethic diligent. D Prime 215 is on a mission to create songs that stand the test of time, and with his unique blend of the old and the new, he’s sure to accomplish just that.
