East London's Jay Prince has received co-signs from the likes of Chance The Rapper and critical acclaim from
the likes of Zane Lowe (Beats One) for his music, which fuses silky smooth raps that touch on life experiences and social/cultural opinions, over funky, feel good production.
The 24 year old rapper/producer, who’s sound has been described as “honeyed hip-hop, recalling the dawn
of US sunshine rap”, has received widespread support. MTV listed him as an artist on “The Brink”, whilst XXL shortlisted him for the prestigious Freshmen 2016; one of few British names ever selected.
Jay has established himself as an exciting live performer with a series of tour dates.
