B.g. The Prince Of Rap biography
The name "B.G. The Prince Of Rap" (also known as just "The Prince of Rap") belongs to artist Bernard Greene, who, since the beginning of the 90s, has been contributing to the German dance scene. His albums 'The Power Of Rhythm' (1991) and 'The Time Is Now' (1994) have brought him the success he deserved.
Since 1985 this native American has been living in Germany, and like so many artists before him, the U.S. Army brought him to Europe. After he left the Army, he began to live of his talents of singer and dancer which he had discovered during his scholarship. "Everything began in a Gospelchoir at school", he tells. "My first musical experience was in a Rhythm & Blues style, which still remains my favourite music style".
Without any difficulty he made his place on the Frankfurter scene, awarding first places in many rap contests. So much talent could not remains unnoticed, and he was soon contacted by the producers who would launch his international career. Among these internationally recognized people was Jam El Mar who had already made some remixes for Dr. Alban, Enigma, Frankie Goes to of Hollywood or Quincy Jones, and Stefan Benz, who co-wrote the lyrics of B.G.' s songs. With this team B.G. could really deserve his surname 'The Prince OF Rap'.
For BG the public shows are as significant as the presence on the radio and in the charts. 'Live appearances', he says, 'are particularly important to me. There I can really emphasize fully my qualities of rapper. In studio I can only show a part of what I can do'. His shows are thus already well-known, and they allow BG to make his public discover his new creations, like Stomp. Released in 1996, this tracks contains some fast rap inserts, carried by very housy beats. 'It's a cover of a song by Brother Johnston, a song I always enjoyed. The idea of transposing it in the 90s made me enthousiastic'. This single announced a new album, with 'more raps, and more soul in the accommodations'.
In 2004, B.G. was featured by Big T for the single Bad Boy.
