My Finest Hour
Bio Like every kid growing up in the ghetto, music touched many, and like many, the goal of capturing it seemed unattainable...not for Prince J. Despite learning the true meaning of homelessness in South East Washington, D.C., and at that time surviving the uncertainty of living in an alcoholic and drug addicted household, Prince James McNair still persevered. "Surviving the crack era (80's), made adults outta children." With a clear vision of the future, Prince J knew that controlling the business side of music, would propel him ahead of his competition, he was right. In August of 2003, a local Atlanta rapper by the name of Big Weazie, asked if he would sponsor a trip to Brooklyn, NY to record some new songs with a couple of friends /producers by the names of A.C. and Dap (Brooklyn's Best Kept Secret). A friendship formed and immediately after returning to Atlanta, Prince J invested in a full pre-production studio, packed with industry standard equipment, but didn't know how to use it...any of it. Working day and night to make sense of some of the technical issues of the music biz, Da Prince realized that Hip-Hop's almighty carrot is quite elusive. In February of 2004, he acquired the services of an Atlanta DJ from Lawrence, KS, by the name of DJ Damn. Prince J understood that, in Hip-Hop, sometimes it takes being connected to "movers and shakers" already in the business that can help with the unseen issues that new artists face. "By the Grace of God", Mr. Jeff Thomas, a manager at one of Atlanta's famous clubs (Club 112), introduced him to a producer in July of 2005 by the name of Spencer who was working for "Organized Noise". With those key elements in place, creating melodic, hypnotic, and head banger sounds would be a cinch. After taking three years to learn more of the business side of music, Prince J returns with his own publishing company named Crazy 88s, of course, signing himself. Da Prince is quick to mention, "Knowledge of the business will grant you longevity, but will not guarantee success". Prince J's debut album "My Finest Hour" is due to be released late fall of 2006 and he is currently marketing and promoting himself as well as four singles from the album. This hot, new, unsigned hype gets 4 ½ Mics and is available for bookings.
