For decades, serial entrepreneur James Prince presided over Rap-A-Lot Records, one of the first and most successful independent rap labels. In his memoir, he explains how he earned his reputation as one of the most respected men in Hip Hop. By staying true to his three principles of heart, loyalty, and commitment, and an unwavering faith in God, he has defeated many adversaries. Whether battling the systemic cycle of poverty, record label executives, boxing promoters, or corrupt DEA agents, Prince has always emerged victorious. Respect isn't given, it's earned. In recounting his compelling life story, Prince analyzes the art and science of earning respect - and giving respect - and how to apply these principles to your own life.

    Great read, being a big fan of the houston music scene growing up as a child (while being a fellow Houstonian). I had to read and try to learn from J Prince. This book really gave me some insight on the business side of the music industry. I hope to start my own indie label one day as well Definitely recommend to any musicians, djs, artists or entrepreneurs out there!! Houston baby \m/

    Ages 18-35 if you are in the streets or have the mentality of a street orientated person read this book it will teach you a lot about ethics and why something’s are ere-levant and you should change or stay away from, it’s not just about making a way ( fast money ) but you have to figure out how to build in a honest way. And make the money last

    This memoir is one of the best that I have read in a while. It shows the endurance of a man that is wise beyond measure. His story is truly inspiring and I urge everyone to experience this book! It is not only for people who are interested in hip hop; this book speaks volumes about a man who was ambitious and resilient. A must read!

    To all who haven’t heard of this man until the Drake and Push beef, such as myself, please carve 15 min out of your morning, such as myself, to ready about this man and his contributions to the culture we live and love everyday! Thanks J. Prince for the motivation and inspiration, from a black ghetto child, such as yourself.
