Chezeq Young (KAY-zik YUNG) Also Known as – Prophie Luciano – is an American Hip-hop recording artist, producer and music executive from Pittsburgh, PA. Born December 6, 1993 Chezeq is the son of Thomas and Lisa Young and is the brother of 1 sister and 3 brothers. Since the age of 3 years old Chezeq had a passion for entertaining people, he got his first start on the stage of Mount Carmel Church where he performed in front of a packed house on Sunday morning. After his performance the young entertainer received high praises from everyone in the congregation, this feeling of accomplishment only drove him to want to do more.
At the age of 10 Chezeq’s father bought him his first drum machine and he picked up on music production very fast. Not long after he started making beats he got his hands on some turntables and took a stab at deejaying. Chezeq was not only musically inclined he was also a 4.0 student while attending Gateway High School. Inspired by artists such as; Lil Wayne, J Cole, Kendrick Lamar and Jay Z the Pittsburgh recording artist became fascinated with everything about music. He would spend most of his time putting shows together or producing new music for other local artists.
Now going by the name Prophecy, Chezeq was still trying to find his voice in hip-hop; a few name changes he tried a few different production styles. In high school people either called him Proph or Prophecy, he ran with other local artists called High Life. They would perform locally and do music together around the city. Chezeq decided to focus on his education and took a brief break from writing and producing music.
He went on to attend North Carolina A&T University where he majored in Engineering. This was where he released his mixtape “The Hiatus” it was a tribute to Grammy Award Winning artist Lauren Hill. The Hiatus immediately became an online fan favorite and garnered Chezeq a few interviews. This is also when he would catapult his “Liferz Movement”. Prophie, credits Kanye West for inspiring him to think outside the box and to be original. That originality would end up paying off when Prophie Luciano would become a well sought-after producer and emcee.
