Polished, layered and typically introspective: ‘Wonder’ is the new EP from UK rap artist, Jay Prince

UK rising rap icon Jay Prince announces his new EP ‘WONDER’ – released 25th January. 7 tracks of unfiltered, glossed-out, lyrical quality, it looks set to continue the trajectory of one of the most critically celebrated and gifted UK rappers and producers of recent times.

Speaking on the track, the rapper states: “Putting together this body of work was a time (and still is) where I had to face truths about myself, understanding my personal growth at a time where Iʼve had to adapt to a lot of change as I get older, honing into the artist that Iʼm becoming.

It became about channelling a freedom for myself in a society full of constraints, where people are judged and feel like they canʼt be themselves or feel like they have to live up to a standard where expression is so limited and tamed. ‘Wonder’ is about breaking those boundaries and false ideals that we think we need in order to survive or get by in this world. Understanding that you are the centrepiece to life itself is how I believe we truly flourish; having the strength to be yourself and dig deep trying to figure that out.”

The rapper has recently announced a 2019 tour which will take him to 11 cities across Europe, heading to London March 7th. Rightfully seen as one of the UK’s brightest emerging talents since he was handpicked by Chance The Rapper to support his last European tour (adding to a list that includes Mick Jenkins, Mura Masa and Major Lazer), the East London boy who honed his musical ability playing in the band at his local Canning Town church continues to cross boundaries with his emotive, polished sound.

With critical acclaim from the likes of THE FADER, PIGEONS & PLANES, RED BULL and NOISEY, Prince remains one of few British names making moves in America. Currently also the face of the Reebok UK campaign, this new body of work cements his status as a true UK thoroughbred.
