Today we are chilling it with a new up and coming rapper named Swagstar Prince.
HipHopLEAD: That is an interesting name. For starts where did the name come from?
Swagstar Prince: Off top I got a natural Swag, I dont have to try to possess that, feel me. The Star part comes from what I do on my leisure, ya’dig. I be up their wit the stars bruh( laughs). And the Prince part comes from my persona, you know when people say your “highness”, well ya im ya “high”ness lol. I treat people like I want to be treated, I wanna be treated like a Prince, there ya go, peeeum.
HipHopLEAD: Where are you reppin?
Swagstar Prince: Zone 3, Atlanta Ga, Mars!!!!
HipHopLEAD: What made you wanna get into HipHop?
Swagstar Prince: I was always around music when I was youngin’, I always wanted to be in my own lane, so what I used to do was mess around freestyling on whatever my mom and dad were playing.
HipHopLEAD: Who were your influences to get into music?
Swagstar Prince: My mother and Father (Rest In Paradise), my peers really, I aint gonna lie, like it was a roster of artists that made me want to, because I was a fan of the art before anything.
HipHopLEAD: Being from Georgia are you happy with the current artists leading the way?
Swagstar Prince: Hell yeah, they keepin’ us relevant in the game right now. Its crazy goin’ to D.C. or somewhere on the West Coast hearin’ somethin’ that just dropped in our hood. Gotta love it
HipHopLEAD: Alot of people say the majority of the rappers in the South are not lyrical. After listening to “retarded”, and a few other records its apparent that quality lyrics are important to you. What makes you not want to not dumb it down?
Swagstar Prince: (laughs) For what, real life I be in my own world when I get in dat booth fam. If you understand where I’m coming from then you know what direction I’m goin’. I got a mean ass vocab and I’m gonna use it like ammo, bruh.
HipHopLEAD: What projects have you released to date?
Swagstar Prince: “Swag Of An Astronaut”, make sure you download it on datpiff.comm and it is sponsored, so you have no excuse lol. I got random tracks out on quality DJ’s mixtape as you all know, from the Digital Dynasty series (peeeum) I got a joint on DJ P Exclusivez Swag Report 3, randomness fam.
