James Prince

James Prince is the Houston-based CEO of Rap-A-Lot Records and boxing promoter. His label, founded in 1987, is named after his brother Sir Rap-A-Lot. Prince formed the group the Geto Boys and managed fighter Floyd Mayweather until 2003. He launched the non-profit organizations Prince Complex and Care-A-Lot Foundation. It’s because of giving back to his hometown that Houston Mayor Bill White declared January 30 as “James Prince Day” in 2007. Before getting involved in the music industry, Prince was a used car salesman.
