Wise Intelligent is the front man for the critically acclaimed and Legendary Hiphop trio known to the world as the “Poor Righteous Teachers”. PRT hail from and represent to the fullest Trenton New Jersey (New Jerusalem). They released five incredible albums throughout their illustrious career. Their groundbreaking first album Holy Intellect was released on Profile records in 1990 and introduced to the world one of the most unique and revolutionary sounds in Hiphop history. Their equally impressive follow up album Pure Poverty was released in 1991 and cemented their place as one of Hiphop’s most elite groups. Black Business (1993/Profile), New World Order (1996/Profile), and Declaration Of Independence (2001/Exit 7a Records) continued to build on PRT’s standard of lyrical excellence and commitment to raising the consciousness of poor people worldwide. Throughout all of PRT’s albums, they have espoused the virtues of righteousness (without being self-righteous) as embodied in the struggle of poor people around the world. Growing up in any ghetto in any country around the world is not an easy task. Urban decay, joblessness, homelessness, racism, drugs and death are just a few of the things that await the children of the world, and PRT has always stood on the front lines of that struggle. Poor Righteous Teachers have also been on numerous national and international tours.
Now in 2007, Wise Intelligent is stepping back out on the front lines once again with an incredible new solo album that will undoubtedly raise the bar of lyrically integrity and change the game once again. Over the years many different styles have developed, and many different Mc’s/Rappers have come and go, but none as original, honest, or distinct as the lyrical wizardry and unforgettable delivery of Wise Intelligent. Blending a unique style of Jamaican chanting and rapid-fire poetry, Wise has always delivered an unparalleled vocal assault.

Wise Intelligent Iz…The Talented Timothy Taylor will be released on July 17th 2007. This powerful album will mark the moment when a True MC and Classic Hiphop Muzik will make it’s debut against the backdrop of the heavily marketed and marginally talented artist that have saturated the industry for far too long. With this new album Wise wants to take you on an intimate journey into not only the making of a legendary MC, but you’re going to get a glimpse of what went into making the man. Wise Intelligent’s message is a simple yet powerful one “The reason Hiphop is considered DEAD and the community is in a complete state of chaos and disorder is because WE ARE NOT LISTENING TO ENOUGH INTELLIGENT MUZIK!”. The God has declared that “It’s NO LONGER Smart to be DUMB!” and if you’re not ready to step up then it’s time for you to step down. So are you ready to go back to the time when talent determined who was the best MC? Well if you are then get ready to embrace and experience “The Talented Timothy Taylor”…
