Prince William’s inspiring self-confidence and rhymes are likely to appeal to fans of artists like Jay-Z, Childish Gambino and J Cole.
A highly self-motivated artist, Prince William has started a music career through his own determination and grit, setting up his very own record label Lavish Living Ent.
He explains the source of his drive: ‘When I decided to start making music, I called lots of old friends from Elementary all the way to High school and they all (exaggerated with “all” but pretty damn close) dismissed me and that helped me develop my “self-inspiring” attitude and I also learned to depend on myself much more than the average person.’
Prince William has always seen himself as an underdog. Upon starting a career in rap he was told by a peer “I don’t wanna hear music about your problems, if I wanted to hear about problems I would’ve stayed home and looked at bills. This is not the rap game, I want to see girls shake their asses and music I can dance to.”
Eager to continue with his vision and keep making the socially conscious hip hop that drove him, he has since proved his critics wrong by performing at SXSW and scoring radio airplay from Kiss FM phoenix and an interview with KTSU Houston. He was also recently interviewed by Hip hop Weekly.
