Chicago has a history of producing upper echelon and game-changing artists — from Kanye, Common, and Lupe Fiasco to the genre-shifting architects of the city’s drill sound, like Chief Keef and Lil Durk.
From this environment, 26-year-old Prince Shun has been steadily building his buzz, opening up or working with acts like Drake, Nicki Minaj, Kirko Bangz, Lil Durk, and the late King Von, G Herbo, Young Thug, and many more. In recent years, he’s found himself at the table, fielding lucrative offers from major label record deals, having accumulated millions of streams, as a solo artist and ghostwriter — though he’s humbly mum about the names for whom he’s helped pen jams.
With a bright future in the industry, the young star stays true to the city that bred him; understanding poverty, he is continually giving back — from food drives to donations to education. His heart is full of compassion.
Boasting a network of 5 million, his latest project, No Handouts, is a testament to the hard work put in, coming from the bottom on his own volition and (most importantly) on his terms.
