RECORDING artiste Prodi (formerly Prodigal Son) launched his eight-track EP, Voice of the People, to a capacity crowd at 689 by Brian Lumley restaurant in New Kingston, St Andrew, on Wednesday night.

"We went for the best of the best and we just kept it real. It wasn't a rush project because we took the time out to get it done," Prodi told the Jamaica Observer.

Voice of the People features songs including Kingston City, Hustlers Anthem, Gone Too Soon, Tears I Cry, and I am Going Home (featuring Konshens). The set includes production work from Radikal Yawd, Dean Fraser and Hamma Production.

The project is distributed by VP Records.

The 38-year-old deejay, whose given name is Calvin Curtis Whilby, described his latest project as uplifting.

"It's a positive vibe, clean music and uplifting messages. Something positive for everyone," he said.

As the gospel artiste Prodigal Son, he released six studio albums beginning with 2000's Radikal Prodigal. His last full-length studio effort was 2012's 7699. He is known for hits such as Journey, Still Standing and Head Caan Hot Suh.
