We’ve been playlisting Dubbada Loud from Bronx hip hop artist Sir-Prize – and we caught up with him to chat about his life and loves in music.
Tell us a little bit about your yourself?
I am Sir-Prize the Bronx Native. I grew up doing gymnastics. I discovered my passion for music early just growing up around it in the Bronx.
By the age of 14, entering high school I was around the Hip Hop scene DJing with a crew called “Tape Master Crew”. So that’s where I learned how to move the crowd.
I’ve peformed twice at the famous Apollo Theater in Harlem and also many local clubs and venues. I also auditioned and appeared in the Adam Sandler movie Anger Management.
When did you first start to develop a passion for music?
I begin to freestyle and write songs in my high school years. From rapping with other MC’s from the lunchroom, front of the school, to the back of the train with the lights off, to creating songs in my composition notebook.
The passion was born with me growing up in a household of great old school music.
Which artists did you listen to while growing up?
Michael Jackson, Prince, Teddy Pendergrass, James Brown, LL Cool J, Public Enemy, Slick Rick, Redman, Special ED, RUN DMC, Nas, Jayz, Busta Rhymes, just to name a few.
