Recently, one of Milwaukee's hip-hop golden children – Prophetic – released a new "webtape" called "Purgatory."

If anybody has been following Proph's career, they knew that a slew of videos were bound to start popping up soon after the release of the new project.

The first video from "Purgatory" was released today and it's for the song "Jungle" and it was directed by Xavier Ruffin, a director that frequently works with Proph.

The video works in the juxtaposition of real African jungle scenes with the storyline that Prophetic is presenting in his rhymes, and is one of Proph's best visuals to date.

Honorable mention shout out goes to Haz Solo's beard that's prominently featured in the first verse.
