A legend in the game, a rap sheet longer than most and an original member of the innovative East London rap group Ruff Sqwad, Prince Rapid returns to the musical fray in his own right with fresh new material. He brings that nostalgic UK Funky sound back like it never left and in full vigour with his latest offering “Fresh N Clean“.
He infuses his hard hitting bouncy drum patterns and driving bass lines with a cultural Afro percussion groove and carnival whistles on this new record. Featuring both his production and his vocals, the seasoned producer balances the two perfectly to allow space for the instrumental to perform, making it a lively, body-moving joint.
His consistent flow of productions has been scattered with his own self-releases as he dips in and out of the artist/producer role, clearly at his own pleasure and enjoyment. Speaking of his latest self-release “Fresh N Clean”, Prince Rapid says: “It’s very tense out here with the violence on the streets so I wanted to create an experience that allows people to loosen up and dance. It’s all about vibes and enjoyment”.
Having been the man behind tracks from some of the biggest names in UK music, including Dizzee Rascal, Tinie Tempah, Skepta, Stormzy and international star Mavado to name a few, Prince Rapid is one of the most sought-after producers to bring the best out of an artist and capture the original and genuine UK sounds. His legacy has and will continue to precede him and be evident in his craft.
