Prophet is an independent record label based in Memphis, Tennessee, formerly owned by DJ Paul and Juicy J. As a group act, Prophet Entertainment goes by the stage name Prophet Posse. From 1991 to 1994 it launched new independent musical artists linked mainly to the strands of American music such as crunk, Hip hop, Gangsta rap, Southern Hip Hop and Horrorcore. As of 2009, the label is assumed defunct.

History[edit]

DJ Paul, Juicy J, along with Nick Scarfo, founded Prophet in 1991. Three 6 Mafia would release the original Mystic Stylez and Chapter 1: The End on the label. DJ Paul and Juicy J would soon have a falling out with Nick Scarfo and as a result, left Prophet and founded their own label Hypnotize Minds, taking Three 6 Mafia with them. Nick Scarfo bought artist Indo G out of his contract with Hypnotize Minds for $120,000 and would go on to sue DJ Paul and Juicy J, though they ended up settling all matters out of court.

In early 2000 some former members of the original Prophet returned to the label. And in 2007, Nick Scarfo relaunched Prophet and would go on to release a new album featuring the original Prophet Posse called “The Return”. Some original Prophet and former Hypnotize Minds members such as Gangsta Boo, T-Rock, K-Rock, Koopsta Knicca, and Lil Pat would work with Prophet Posse. The last Prophet release was "Hood U.S.A.", in 2008. Nick Scarfo died on August 7, 2015.
