Hailing from Augusta, GA, a place where many things aren’t afforded to you, Jamaican-American emerging recording artist, Shaudy Prince, had to make some hard decisions. It’s easy to become a product of your environment but what do you do when you want more? What do you do when the blueprint laid before you isn’t the one you envision for yourself? The answer for Shaudy was simple. You get it out the mud!
You never change things around you by trying to fight the existing reality. To change your reality you have to build a new model that makes the existing one obsolete. That’s where ‘Disgusta’ evolved from! Disgusta is a negative term of self hatred created by the very people who reside there. So I decided to attach it to my overall brand, and make it my own creative way of drawing a line between the real, and fake which can only truly be seen from the inside out, not the opposite Like Shawty Lo said “It Must Be Two Sides”!
Forming his own independent label, Hood Royalty Empire in 2017, Shaudy is well on his way. No stranger to the hard work, he gets the job done and executes a flawless delivery every time. Shaudy’s music is the perfect combination of skill and real, creating the lyrical lemonade you never knew you needed.
I stopped making myself so accessible to everybody. I cut EVERYBODY off, and now I’m starting from scratch. I’m revamping the city along with the perception of how an Augusta artist should “look, or sound”. Which is why I’m excited to release my 1st compilation mixtape ‘The QuaranTeam’ Compilation! The whole album is produced by Dolo Hendrixx, and features Myself, Dolo Hendrixx, Tron The Rapper, Jah Bleu, and Supreme Lord K. This project alone has its very own significance to me because we were able to complete it during the pandemic. That’s 5 different personalities, 5 different people dealing with an obstacle such as Covid. Not only dealing with that, but just dealing with life in general. Add all of that together, and we were still able to put our heads together to create a masterpiece. You could say we are the starting 5 to a whole bigger picture to be created. We are the Dream Team!
