In this episode of PoPolitickin, we politick with the one and only J Prince.

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.

In this episode of PoPolitickin, we politick with devMaccc.

Born and raised in the birthplace of America's music, Mississippi native devMaccc is an aspiring Hip-Hop artist with a completely different sound you wouldn't expect to hear.

Inspired by artists of various genres such as Frank Sinatra, John Coltrane, J. Cole, Logic, Lauryn Hill, Anthony Hamilton, and many more.

Raised by his single mother in the rural town of Florence, the southern teachings of his family that were instilled in him are somewhat expressed throughout his lyrics.

At the age of 7, he found an interest in music with the help of his father supplying him with multiple records by his childhood idol Bow Wow aka Shad Moss. Growing up , he began to appreciate the southern pioneers of hip hop which included his hometown hero David Banner, Lil Flip, T.I, and more.

Struggling with depression caused by his mother's battle with breast cancer, he began to find an outlet. Music. Performing in middle school, high school, & community talent shows, he began to get a buzz around his name. After the deaths of his grandparents and reoccurrence of his mother's cancer,

Maccc began to free his emotional self. He found himself writing less about materialistic items and more about family, ex-girlfriends, aspirations, and his spirit animal.. the wolf.

Throughout the years, he has paid close attention to the music that is displayed to the youth throughout his home state. His mission is not to drive the nicest car or have the baddest tea model, but to uplift the generation with conscious and relatable messages with substance. And he wants to do it all in Mississippi. Since releasing his debut project "Euphoria" in February of 2016, Maccc has been performing nonstop throughout Mississippi opening for various touring artists and traveling throughout the southern region performing at festivals such as A3C and Essence.

In this episode of PoPolitickin, we politick with Lyric Michelle.

Chicago bred and Houston raised, the music of Lyric Michelle pays homage to both; fusing southern charm, a touch of poetry and a blast of ferocious lyricism to deliver a sound that is uniquely her own.

Initially getting her start in poetry, in time it would be music that would steal her heart, as she smoothly transitioned from penning prose to spitting bars. For Lyric the transition was not only smooth, it was natural. Or as she describes it, “Hip Hop is poetry. Think of Eminem, Lupe, Lauryn. Real hip hop and poetry are different sides of the same coin.”

A woman on a mission, for Lyric it’s not just about the music; it’s about opening doors for a new crop of female emcees intent on proving that when it comes to lyrical skill they can go toe to toe with any of their male peers in the game. And indeed she can, as proven after being selected as a Pop Montreal Festival Artist and repeated appearances as an official SXSW and A3C artist.


In short, “Her appeal lies in the manner in which she intertwines beauty and sheer talent, a feat that has garnered her comparisons to one of her own musical icons, Lauryn Hill.” Like they say, what’s a song without a Lyric.

In this episode of PoPolitickin, we politick with singer/songwriter Polly A.

You could say Polly A possesses more than one musical personality. The Milwaukee-bred and Harlem-based songstress zig-zags between R&B, reggae, alternative, and hip-hop with equal parts grace and gusto on her debut EP, Ghetto Gold Dream [222 Records/Interscope].

“When I sing, I approach the vocals like a soul singer,” she says. “When I write, I approach the lyrics like a rapper. When I’m thinking about music, I collaborate with others who draw from a large sonic palette. I spend a lot of time with my songs, and I really live with them. These are my words and thoughts.”

Growing up to the sounds of Bob Marley and Yellowman on mom’s stereo, Polly A—aka Meleni Smith—discovered her voice in a third grade music class. She’d spend high school performing in local productions and even with the Florentine Opera Company. Moving to New York City, the budding artist enrolled in Columbia University and began seriously recording (and hustling).
