Black Prince also known as Don Blaq, a highly slept on Trenton, NJ MC who has been featured on many of the NYC DJ Doo Wop mix tapes and CDs. He also was featured on Poor Righteous Teachers posse cut "da rill shit" in 1993.
But the prize material that never got released is now surfacing. With tight early 90's productions on the same vibe as Pete Rock and A Tribe Called Quest, Black Prince rips these 6 songs. Often compared to a young Nas, Black Prince is a must for any DJ or record collector. All of the material was recorded in early 1993 and is completed with final mixes not rough drafts. All songs are produced by the legendary prolific Italian American NJ Hip Hop producer and emcee Tony D, who passed away on April 4th, 2009.
Tony D produced Golden Era Hip Hop artists Poor Righteous Teachers & YZ. He also produced records for DJ Muggs, Too Kool Posse, Blvd. Mosse, Scott Lark, King Sun, Dungeon Lordz, Blaque Sperm, Shawn Lov, Outsidaz and many more. Tony D released his 1991 solo album “Droppin’ Funky Verses” (4th & Broadway/Island) and was part of the group Crusaders for Real Hip Hop with their “De Ja Vu It’s ‘82” 1993 album (Profile Records). He also produced some abstract Hip Hop records for the UK Grand Central label. Tony D produced and released the 2006 Poor Righteous Teachers “Rare & Unreleased” album on his own Cha-Ching Records label. The Roger Gardens EP is being officially released on Cha-Ching Records through Tony D’s wife.
