Born and raised on the North Side of St. Louis Missouri, twenty-two year old rapper Prince Ea has a sound unlike most artists coming out from the Midwest. Possessing a great song writing ability, he combines creative, thought-provoking verses with humor, wit, passion and hard hitting punch-lines. From his YouTube videos which have garnered over ten million hits, Prince Ea has developed a loyal Internet fan base. His most recent video entitled “Amazing Nerd Rapper Pwns Bullies” features him freestyling following an interview at popular radio station HOT 104.1 in St. Louis MO.

Prior to Prince Ea’s most recent Internet success, he has also been featured in both national and local publications. In 2009 VIBE Magazine declared him Vibe Verses Grand Champion and he received a full page article in Vibe’s June 2009 edition. Also in 2009, Prince Ea founded and formed an organization called Make SMART Cool (SMART, an acronym for Sophisticating Millions and Revolutionizing Thought). The organization seeks to promote positive social change in various concrete ways from speaking at schools, organizing community events/benefit performances, partnering with community based organizations and setting up educational mentorship programs. In early 2010 the MSC enterprise received sponsorship from legendary hip hop producer Dr. Dre’s brand of headphones, “Beats By Dre.” It has also received support from artists such as Immortal Technique, Sha Stimuli, August Rigo, Klassic (So So Def) and Grammy award winning rapper, Black Thought. Prince Ea was also featured in the 2010 December issue of DISCOVER magazine for his academically provocative single “The Brain.” In 2011, Prince Ea graduated from a full scholarship at the University of Missouri St. Louis.
