TURQUOISE PRINCE RELEASES NEW SINGLE LIKE YOUR FRIENDS
Turquoise Prince is ready to introduce himself as this country’s next great rapper. The Canberra MC and singer has been bubbling under for a while now, and he’s ready to pop with his debut single Like Your Friends dropping today and it’s available digitally now.
For a predominantly unknown rapper he’s clocked up some serious accolades already. His 2016 track World’s Apart was premiered on triple j and scaled its way up the Spotify viral charts reaching pole position. Last year alone he played Groovin The Moo, Listen Out and Spilt Milk festival and this year he’s toured nationally with Horrorshow off the back of an appearance on their latest album Bardo State. On top of that he’s also worked with local producers Enschway and Kuren, showing his ability early on to jump between genres with ease.
Like Your Friends is a testament to that diversity, seamlessly blending electronic influences with hip-hop and soul. He sings in the chorus and lays down bars in the verses, proving his competence in being both the hook-maker and the MC.
Studying masters both old and new, from Notorious B.I.G. to Kendrick Lamar, he’s a young artist intent on honing his craft. Turquoise Prince is also acutely aware of the importance of rhythm and the way words can be broken up, flipped and twisted. All of his own music and features so far have displayed his ability to maintain a groove while being honest and autobiographical.
Off the back of Like Your Friends, Turquoise Prince will hit the stage hot next month at the One Dayer’s Carpark Carnival in Sydney on Sunday 3 September, showcasing some of the best up and coming talent in hip hop and RnB in the country.
