Supposedly, as Prog-Metal masters Dream Theater were recording their album Awake (1994), a rapper named Prix-Mo was laying down tracks in an adjacent studio. As the story goes, Dream Theater's drummer Mike Portnoy wandered over and asked Prix-Mo if he wouldn't mind reading a few lines from the book "Cultural Revolution", and this reading was used in an interlude of the song 'Voices'.

I've googled Prix-Mo, and there's absolutely nothing on the Internet I can find on the guy. Does he really exist, or was this a bit of misinformation passed around the Internet community? If he exists, has he ever released anything? Maybe under a different name?

  • If you'd actually googled him you'd have found he's also credited on discogs.com/Animaniacs-A-Hip-hopera-Christmas/release/2914828 . Why wouldn't there have been a rapper called "Prix-Mo" who never became famous? Pop music is full of "failed" artists. – BCdotWEB Sep 19 '16 at 8:58

    OK, fair enough, but he was supposedly in the studio cutting tracks. Where's the result of that? Surely he'd have one solo album under his belt? A single? A wiki page? Something? – Johnny Bones Sep 19 '16 at 15:50
