Prince draws from his Queens influences of Nas and LL Cool J, taking his listeners on a story with each track. In a business where repetition is abundant, the Prince of Queens tries to think outside of the box and give the listeners a unique experience with each song.  

“My songs’ mean something and reflect my daily struggles whether it’s issue internally with myself, with my girlfriend or with my family.”

CJ recently christened the “Prince of Queens” release at the Static nightclub Astoria, New York. The guests of the event exert a vibe of excitement, New York is in for a surprise. July 16th (tomorrow!!!) "Prince of Queens" will be released on all major mix tape mediums; DatPiff, LiveMixtapes and HotNewHipHop. Keep your eyes on the look out and your ears alert for this fresh Underrated winner...

"Now I feel like a different rapper. It is a process and I feel I am getting better with each track and everyone is gonna see it July 16th.”

“ It doesn’t stop here we have so much more ready for the future. I am getting my flow down on tracks; I got new tracks lined up ready to be released. I am gaining popularity around Queens and New York but I want to take it bigger.”

How did you start your music career?

Gifted Miinds started their career in 2011, all it took was 1 upload on youtube and the reaction from the public. All of our 6 recording artist developed thru a pen and a pad or just a instrumental and rhymes of the top. The Gifted Miinds eclectic group the Trinity has been the face of music since 2011 who include artist Lokii Jay, Lotus and Laze. The Trinity have been creating a buzz with the help of the Gifted Team, performing at gigs, and promoting online. The rest of our recording artist Pharoah, Wize, and Profit have been working on their come up as they hit up the GM studio working on new music. The Newark NJ, based group is sure to bring a new essence to the culture with their rhymes and clothing, be sure to check us out www.GiftedMiinds.com

What is your first memory/encounter with music?

There is a limitless amount of memories in this family, we aren't only a group we are family wether it be just hanging in the basement and freestyling a crazy verse, a funny scene shooting a video, or rocking a crazy show. The most memorable encounter we've experience was our 1st performance at Union County College NJ. It was our 1st show, and there was 2 prizes, $100 from the judges and $50 from the crowd, we were the winners for both prizes taking the $150 home that night! We Performed our track called Armageddon and the crowd immediately connected, we also threw free shirts for the crowd they loved it and so did we, by far that is our most memorable. #JERSEY

Tell me a little bit about the idea behind your group - Gifted Miinds? 

The idea behind Gifted Miinds is to connect with the world all the gifted people out there, most importantly our YOUTH. The Gifted is a reference of our talents, our movement, and most importantly our fans, and Miinds includes the double "ii" to reference the groups logo the 2 brained alien that sums up together "Gifted Miinds". We all have a gift, sometimes we feel discourage because of where we come from, the daily struggles we face, or the way we are made specially in our hometown Newark NJ. The ideal purpose and heart of this movement is to inspire the youth, guide them through our music and open their eyes and mind to the world, stick up for Jersey and walk with them thru their life and welcome them to walk along with ours musically.

What inspires you on a daily basis?

    Our inspiration is everything. Where we started and where we stand is an inspiration, the love from fans, our family, and the life in Jersey. The drive comes from our personal struggles, we all have a story to tell, we all have a point to come across, we all have someone to reach out to, we all have lost before, and are searching to gain thru our passion and live through our dreams. You inspire me.

How did you start getting involved with fashion/merchandise? What year did you release the brand?

We first got started with our brand and designing late 2011, we designed through an iPad and sketches and officially released our brand on April 2012 dropping the GM Alien snapback design. Since, we have been producing and have released, sweaters, t-shirts, pins, beanies, and snapbacks for our customers. The brand was created as another outlet for the music to get to consumers, to show a different talent in our art and to give our fans high quality designed products at an affordable price, not for the gain of money but a connection which is richer than anything in this world. All designs are created in-house by Laze and the GM crew. The Newark based brand has gained exposure through music and online sells touching grounds like NY, Texas, Maryland, VA, LA, NJ, all the way to the UK and growing daily. Be sure to check out our clothing. "We all have a Gifted, Lets Wear it"

What are some of your proudest accomplishments over the past couple of years?

One of the proudest accomplishments would be when kids messaged us and said they're dream is to meet us, or how we inspired them to do music. Another one is the faith we give people, the strength of believe they shower us with, claiming we are the future for Jersey, it's what means most to us. 

What are the future plans for Gifted Miinds?

Gifted Miinds Entertainment will be releasing new music from our artist, new videos and clothing. We hope to keep reaching out to people across the world and inspiring the youth. Our plan is to be the future, the best is yet to come. follow us, one love, one Gifted. #Giftedmiinds

Stay tuned for more Gifted Miinds...
