Hi Rich Prince! Let’s start with how did you get your artist name?
Rich is short for Richard, and Prince came from me being the third and youngest in the family.
What city are you from and where are you based now?
Born and raised in Miami, FL and still currently living in South Florida.
At what point in your life did you decide to pursue a career in music? How did you get started?
Music was something always inside of me already — rhythm, sounds, and feeling vibrant. I just needed to find the right escape path, musically, where all the sounds turn into audio pictures.
Has your upbringing played a role in shaping who you are and defining your sound today? If so, how?
A lot of my music comes from my life experiences, so my journey has definitely shaped me, and it’s still shaping me to this day. I take what I go through and create.
How would you describe your sound to readers who may not be familiar with you?
I would say my sound is soulful and relatable. To know my music is to know me. I let the sounds lead, and I follow. Creating audio-visual for the good, bad, better or worst, but most importantly, highlighting there’s a way out.
Do you have any hobbies outside of music? What do you do to stay creative?
I watch sports, mainly football, or I freelance with my camera.
Who are some of your main musical influences?
TY-DOLLA Sign, WIZ Khalifa, and Nipsey Hussle.
What are some of your future music career goals?
I’m working on my label, VMC, and putting together a team of creators like artists…
