Prez Harris, a 21 year old from Maywood, IL, loves to create. He began his musical journey at the age of 8, when he started learning how to play the drums. Soon after he began writing poetry and rapping with friends, but it wasn’t until his freshman year of college that he accepted his role as a solo artist.
In 2013, Harris went off to college at Northwestern University to study Computer Engineering and minor in Music Technology. His freshmen year, he created a student group called DOJO, with friends Steven Layne, Michael Martinez, and Bomani McClendon. DOJO, a music community with a deep love for Hip Hop, reintroduced creating music to Harris and soon after the group’s creation, he was inspired to begin rapping again.
After a few guest verses, Harris released his first single, Economics, to many positive reviews and a few blog posts. A few weeks later, he released his second single of the tape, Power. A month later in January 2015, he released his debut mixtape, State of The Union. The ten-track project featured artists and producers such as Thaddeus Tukes, AleXander, Aria Charles, Adhana Reid, LexOfNP, Detrakz, Paul Cabbin, etc. Harris began doing shows non-stop after the release, throughout Illinois and Wisconsin opening up for major acts like, B.o.B. and Jay Electronica.
Harris is now set to release his next project, an EP entitled A Different World, this year. Along with the EP, he will be performing at colleges in the Midwest throughout the Fall.
