BG the Prince of Rap biography

Producers : Jam El Mar, Stefan Benz
Rappers : B.G. the Prince Of Rap, Marko Kranjcevic 'DJ Kut Master Kay'
Singers : Paris Red, Joan Faulkner, Chi Chi Ordu, Sabine Schmidt, Janet Taylor

B.G. The Prince Of Rap (real name : Bernard Greene, born in Washington DC) belongs to those artists, who, since the beginning of the 90s, has been contributing to the German dance-scene development. His albums The Power Of Rhythm (1991) and The Time Is Now (1994) have brought him the success he deserved.

Since 1985 this native American has been living in Germany, and like so many artists before him, the U.S. Army brought him to Europe. After he left the Army, he began to live of his talents of singer and dancer which he had discovered during his scholarship. "Everything began in a Gospelchoir at school", he tells. "My first musical experience was in a Rhythm & Blues style, which still remains my favourite music style".

Without any difficulty he made his place on the Frankfurter scene, awarding first places in many rap contests. He was soon contacted by the producers who would launch his international carreer. Among these internationally recognized people was Jam El Mar who had already made some remixes for Dr. Alban, Enigma, Frankie Goes to of Hollywood or Quincy Jones, and Stefan Benz, who co-wrote the lyrics of B.G.' s songs. With this team B.G. could really deserve his surname 'The Prince OF Rap'.

Among all his releases, let's mention the huge Eurodance hits Can We Get Enough (# 19 in Israel), The Colour Of My Dreams (# 10 in Israel and a big hit there even nowadays in the clubs) or Can't Love You.

For BG the public shows are as significant as the presence on the radio and in the charts. "Live appearances", he says, "are particularly important to me. There I can really emphasize fully my qualities of rapper. In studio I can only show a part of what I can do". His shows allowed BG to make his public discover his new creations, like Stomp. Released in 1996, this track contained some fast rap inserts, carried by very housy beats, in the style of Outhere Brothers or 740 Boyz. "It's a cover of a song by Brother Johnston, a song I always enjoyed. The idea of transposing it in the 90s made me enthousiastic". This single announced a new album, with "more raps, and more soul in the accommodations".

The same year, BG contributed as songwriter and as co-producer to Mr Partyman's single Hey Mr Partyman. Single was recorded at The Edge Of Reality Studios and released under ZYX Music.

1997 : Bernard contributed to 2 euro-rap songs (this style was very fashionable at this time) : Da Clique - Player (as composer, songwriter and producer, with the usual team Michael Rödiger and Marko Kranjcevic) and Green - I'll Pray, as a songwriter (with Chris Schwaab, Heinz Felber, Stefan Benz and T. Greene).

1998 : Bernard co-wrote and co-produced euro-rap single Bush-Clan - Children Of Today

2004 : BG was featured by Big T for the single Bad Boy.

2005 : the German project Jet Set covered BG's hit Colour Of My Dreams. As for BG, he is now working at a museum near Wiesbaden in Germany where he moved in September 2005.

2009 : in August, for the first time since many years, BG the Prince of Rap and Janet Taylor performed in a club in Mainz (Germany). In November, both were featured by Michael Thomas on the single We Stood In Flames.

2010 : BG will collaborate with BPM on a brand new track that should be recorded in January 2011.

2015 : in September, during The Real 90s show in Mayence (Germany), BG performed a brand new song, No Limit

2016 : BG teamed with another Eurodance legend, Lane Mc Cray from La Bouche, to record single I Can Feel It.
