'Love and Hip Hop: Miami' will see Prince performing his new song that has an '80s vibe, 90s lyrics, millennial fly'
Most of us forget the hip-hop part of 'Love and Hip Hop' because the show is best known for the baby mama drama, catfights, and perv patrols. However, ever so often a truly talented artiste comes along and surprises us with some amazing music, and Prince from 'Love and Hip Hop: Miami' is promising to be one of them.
He has some new music coming up, and while he tells MEAWW that he has enough music in his bank to "release an EP or a mixtape every three months", he is working with his label to figure out the best of the best, the cream of the crop to put out the first EP. "I have really fully dived in, in the past seven months," Prince says, adding, "All six songs are six completely different vibes, it shows my versatility. You will actually hear one of the songs this season coming up on 'Love and Hip Hop'. I have a performing scene, where I am going to perform this song — I really, really love the song and I feel it, and it has a very Bruno Mars vibe."
When we asked him to get really specific with what fans can expect from the song, he says, "80s vibe, 90s lyrics, millennial fly. It is not what you would expect to come from a loving hip hop person, it's not rap I'll tell you right now. It is not mumble rap, club rap or anything like that. It's very, very different."
He is not delusional enough to think it is going to be everyone’s cup of tea, but he knows he has made some good music. "I know a lot of people are going to be like 'What the f**k is this', but people that really appreciate good music and timeless music I think will appreciate the music. And honestly, worst-case scenario for myself, even if I can't be the biggest music star that I want to be, I know for certain that I have a future in at least writing music for people because the music that I've been coming up with is so good and I know people are delusional and think their music is good but this music is good."
Making good music and spreading good vibes is part of Prince’s bigger agenda to make people feel good. At the end of the day, that’s all he wants to do. He says, "I just want to make people happy and have a good time and put smiles on their faces. Forget all the BS. That's all I want to do — make people smile and have a good time and feel good. I feel that my reasons are somewhat selfish because it makes me feel good to see other people feel good or having fun or happy... I can be flipping burgers at McDonald's, if I'm putting a smile on someone's face, I'm happy and I got some money in my pocket because I don't like being broke."
Prince, however, still does not think that he has "made it". He explains, "I'm famous, not rich." The 'Love and Hip Hop: Miami' star, who recently opened up on the show about how he is the first person in his entire family to "leave a legacy and make our name mean something", says that he wants to be in a position to secure jobs for all his family members.
"I can get to a point where I can put all of my family members, I can have my cousin and my sister, one cousin handling me and my father handling my business ventures, like that would be dope. That's the ultimate goal. That and just leaving behind a legacy I feel like everyone in my family has, you know, messed up."
He adds, "They have faltered or they had their shortcomings where they'd be going to jail where they'd be just given up on their dreams and mine — whatever situation," he says.
That being said, he is not setting himself up to be a Kardashian or a multi-billionaire. "I just want to be good, live good, make people feel good," he says. "I just want to be in a position to make my family eat well and where we come from, make people be like, 'Oh, s**t, that's Prince's dad'. That's all I want to do. You don't see me on TV fighting, you don't see me on TV being messy, because I'm not trying to put that out there."
The career he wants to emulate is that of Will Smith — "If I can get a couple platinum plaques on the wall, you know get a good amount of money — a couple of million — I'll be happy with that. My goal isn't to be this generation's Chris Brown and this generation's Bruno Mars or Prince or Michael Jackson or anything like that. I just want to make people feel good, make some money while I do it. You know, make some s**t that people would still want to listen to 10-15 years and then boom, off onto the next venture."
"I was a promoter, I killed it, now I'm doing music, I want to kill it, and after that, I want to do acting and kill it, and after that hopefully retire." Thanks to 'LHH', which airs every Tuesday, 8/7c pm on Vh1, all his fans will get to see him on this ambitious journey. Meanwhile, you can check out his music on all streaming platforms.
