Prince Paul

Prince Paul (born Paul Huston) is a legendary DJ and hip hop producer. Prince Paul is known for having a very unorthodox, but mostly well-received sense of humor. Musically, he was one of the driving forces of what was to become known as alternative rap, by using surprising samples and quirky humour. Originally a member of Stetsasonic, he produced De La Soul's 1989 debut album 3 Feet High and Rising (It was on this album that Prince Paul invented the hip hop skit which has a long-standing and pervasive tradition on Hip hop albums to this day).

Fayth Hope

Yes, the person writing this is indeed Fayth Hope (and not someone I paid to do my little odds and ends). Who is Fayth Hope? Depends on what time of day it is. But to further break it down, I AM: a wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister, a cousin, a friend, a student, a counselor, a poet, a singer, a songwriter, and a lover of music. Next question: What does Fayth Hope sound like? That's a loaded question lol. Overall, it's a combination of soul and spoken word. But you might also catch me doing something within the jazz, alternative, and folk music realms.
