Propa (Jamel Thomas) was born in Jacksonville, Florida and raised in New Orleans & Bermuda.
Making music has been a part of his life since a young child but 2002 was when he began rapping. The “Hot Boyz” first CD in the late 90’s was the main inspiration for Propa’s journey. He began with lucrative freestyle battles at events that would eventually lead him to songwriting for himself and other artists.
Propa has opened for well known artists such as Mario and Mavado and at events such as Good Friday @ Horseshoe Bay, Hamilton Princess Fashion Show, Peace in The Street (mini tour around Bermuda), Chewstick’s Beachfest and Legendary Open-Mic Jam Session.
