Rising superstar “The Prince of LA” has been putting on for his city in a major way. As a recording aritst, influencer and actor, this LA native is using his talents to make his wildest dreams come true. Having recently worked with Cash Money Records artist BlueFace for his “Come and Find Me” single, he is gearing up for a successful summer run.
I caught up with the budding MC for a quick interview below. As he candidly discusses working with Blueface, why he is the “Prince of LA” and having a hit record, you get a deeper look into what it is like being one of Los Angeles brightest rising stars.
The Prince Of LA Interview
RESPECT: As “The Prince of LA” what does that mean to you and why did you choose it as your stage name?
PRINCE: I chose that name because not only am I from L.A. but I really put on for my city. Outside of music I’ve done charity work and gave back to the community in so many ways, it was only right.
RESPECT: How do you balance being an actor, influencer and recording artist?
PRINCE: You can have multiple talents but you have to lock in on one at a time to really see progress, in my opinion. No way to really balance it, but it’s possible to take one at a time and succeed!
RESPECT: What was the inspiration behind your “Come and Find Me” hit record?
PRINCE: I am an artist that goes to the studio and records on a regular, so I feel this record came just like any other song I would have made. No special inspiration behind this song, in particular, just my inspiration to be a great artist is what pushed me to make the record.
RESPECT: Describe your experience working with BlueFace?
PRINCE: It felt natural. My dad, uncle and I are from Midtown, as well as BlueFace so I feel like it was bound to happen. We were always together and I DJ’d a couple of shows for him when he was coming up, so it wasn’t hard for the music to happen.
RESPECT: Tell us a little about your new record “In These Streets”?
PRINCE: “In These Streets” is an instant ear catcher. I feel like the melodies I laid down on the beat catches a lot of people’s attention, especially the females. Which is one reason I feel the song is growing at such a fast rate. Also, I feel that people can relate to what I’m talking about on the song.
RESPECT: What does the city of LA mean to you?
PRINCE: The city means the world to me. This is where I was born and raised, and it is also the land of opportunities. I see a lot of people here say,” I need to get out of LA” but I don’t think they realize how many people from outside the country would die to be where they are. This is honestly where dreams come true.
RESPECT: How do you plan to create longevity for yourself in the music business?
PRINCE: I feel like making timeless music that people can play over and over, will give me longevity. Creativity, versatility, and knowing when to use all these tools, will for sure extend my time in this industry. Of course, people will box me in based on the song I went viral from, but as I continue to release music the fans will see my true colors as an artist.
