LAST month, singay Jay Prince released his 22-track mix-tape, My Life which he says is more than an introductory product.

"A lot of thought and meditation was put into each track. Everyone will be able to relate as there is something for everyone."

Jay Prince is concentrating on two songs from the Drew Stewart-produced set, Eternal Love and Concrete Jungle. According to the 20-year-old entertainer, the latter addresses the hardships of ghetto life.

"I really hope that these songs will touch and influence the hearts of the listeners. Our youths don't have a mentor to guide and inspire them, so I hope this mix-tape will be an avenue to their mentorship," he stated.

Jay Prince (Prince Williams) knows the challenges of living in inner-city communities. He grew up in the downtown Kingston neighbourhood of Love Lane and says music was his escape from the negatives that surrounded him.

Interestingly, it was a tragic incident that motivated Jay Prince to pursue a career in music.

His older brother, Michael Williams, was also an aspiring artiste, nicknamed True Man Chew Stick. A member of the Junior Ghetto Youths label, Michael Williams was murdered in Kingston in 2009.
