New Memoir Reveals Prince ‘Cheated’ Bassist Out Of Millions


For Mark Brown, the head games began with a cold call from Prince in 1981. And they ended, six years later, with the bassist — rechristened BrownMark, by Prince — confident that the rock star had derailed him out of millions in songwriting royalties.

As related in BrownMark’s new memoir, “My Life in the Purple Kingdom” (University of Minnesota Press), playing with Prince was the best of times and the worst of times — often at the same time. Like when he was cast in the movie musical “Purple Rain.”

“I took drama classes, joined SAG and acted in the movie,” Brown, 58, told The Post. “Then all my scenes were cut. Prince came up with some lame excuse about having to make the movie shorter.”

Before the fast talk and subterfuge, there was that unexpected call. Brown, then 19, took it in the Minneapolis rec center where his funk band rehearsed. “The first thing that went through my mind was that it couldn’t be Prince,” Brown said. “It was surreal.”

Dave B. The Prince (@DaveBTP) - "Gang Time"

South Central-bred rapper Dave B. the Prince released his new single "Gang Time." Touching on the code of the streets and the mackin' way of life, Dave B. the Prince raps about the life he grew up experiencing in the Jefferson Park area of Los Angeles.

 Rapping with an undying dedication since 2007, by 2018 Dave B. The Prince felt he had mastered his craft. From writing on the spot to keeping on topic, Dave had practiced everything from his melodies and pitches to his similes and conjunctions. From vocabulary to the art of understanding people and how they react.

Now with a host of material recorded Dave B. the Prince is ready to release his new song, "Gang Time." "Gang Time, is something new and fresh and it's something nobody has ever heard. It's a mix between some mackin activity and some hatin activities. The person that talk about it the most not really about it. If you start it, finish it strong and if you did some shit, don't speak about it, you ain't gotta be nobody's show pony." Dave B the Prince said. "I talk a lot of gang shit on there. Thats just the code, that's just the way of life.

What's Your Favorite Prince Song?

Prince was a man bursting with music – a wildly prolific songwriter, a virtuoso on guitars, keyboards and drums. Prince was also a master architect of funk, rock, R&B and pop, even as his music defied genres.

A seven-time Grammy winner, Prince had Top 10 hits such as Little Red Corvette, When Doves Cry, Let’s Go Crazy, Kiss and The Most Beautiful Girl in the World; albums like Dirty Mind, 1999 and Sign O’ the Times were full-length statements.

Elsewhere in his catalogue were songs that addressed social issues and delved into mysticism and science fiction. He made himself a unifier of dualities – racial, sexual, musical, cultural – teasing at them in songs like Controversy and transcending them in his career.

Prince’s music had an immediate and lasting influence: among songwriters concocting come-ons, among producers working on dance grooves, among studio experimenters and stage performers.

Prince put way more work into creating the type of music he like than any other artist I know. "Purple Rain" was chosen as the Wrap-Up Magazine most loved song from Prince. It is the first to feature the billing of his band the Revolution, and is the soundtrack to the 1984 film of the same name.

Sony Gets Rights To Prince Music @Sony

Sony Music Entertainment has inked a deal to distribute 35 previously released Prince albums, the label and the late musician’s estate said Wednesday.

Terms of the deal, coming 26 months after Prince’s death, were not disclosed — but sources pegged its value at $20 million to $30 million.

The Sony deal does not include “Purple Rain,” Prince’s best-selling album, or any other soundtrack album.

The estate had signed a $31 million deal with Universal Music Group in February 2017 — but a court voided that deal.

Will Smith To Exec-Produce ‘The Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air’ Reboot

Will Smith has signed on as executive producer for a dramatic reboot of his ’90s sitcom, “The Fresh Prince of Bel- Air.” Morgan Cooper will co-write and direct the project, after he created a 2019 trailer for the concept that went viral and caught Smith’s eye.

The show’s reportedly being shopped to streaming outfits. Ever wonder what The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air might look like if it suddenly returned to the airwaves in 2019? Well, given Hollywood’s current penchant for giving everything a “dark” and “gritty” backstory, it would probably look quite a bit like this superbly made fan film by director Morgan Cooper. Simply titled Bel-Air, it gives Will Smith’s young “Will” a considerably more dire origin story while keeping all of the major Fresh Prince beats intact.

Porn Star Breaks His Penis

Rumors are that porn star +Prince Yahshua broke his penis and is taking donations to get it fixed. Porn actor Prince Yahshua first broke his money maker three years ago during a shoot. A couple of weeks ago, the injury was aggravated enough for him to require medical attention. At the hospital, it was discovered he had actually broken his penis for the second time. Prince Yahshua found out it would cost $32,000 for the surgery to repair his johnson and the subsequent rehabilitation.

Yahshua’s reps have started a fundraising campaign on to help raise the $32,000 for the actor’s medical expenses. Prince Yahshua released a statement to, “Blown away is what I feel right now. I’m saddened to tell the industry and my diehard fans around the world that the injury that sidelined me three years ago has come back to bite me in a big way. After seeing and talking to my doctor on Friday, I was informed once again that I must go under the knife to repair bad tissue damage asap. Today, my heart is a lot happier after seeing what Sandra [McCarthy] and OCM has done for me by starting this fundraiser—I’m speechless! I’d like to thank Sandra, OCM and the fans and companies that have made me who I am today.”

The owner of the agency that reps Prince Yahshua stated, “When Prince contacted me with the devastating news, I was at a loss for words … tears were rolling down my cheeks. I knew I needed to help him emotionally and financially, so I started this fundraiser to help ease the pressure of the huge expenses that were on the way. Healthcare is unaffordable, and Prince doesn’t have a plan due to his pre-existing condition, so he’ll have to pay for the entire surgery out-of-pocket. Lately, the industry seems to have been taking hit after hit, but we all need to stick together and unite as one so we can get through whatever life throws at us.”

J. Prince Talks Roc Nation and Megan Thee Stallion

Megan Thee Stallion found herself in controversy with her record label 1501 Records after inking a management deal with Jay-Z’s Roc Nation last year.

1501 Records simultaneously inked a deal with Houston legend, J. Prince. “Carl is from my hood better known as 5th Ward and I’m proud to be his new partner moving forward,” Prince wrote at the time.

Months later, Meg accused 1501 of not allowing her to drop new music because she requested a negotiation of her contract. She also fired off a $1 million lawsuit and a temporary restraining order, which allowed her to drop all the music we heard since.

What's Your Favorite Drake Track?

When it come to being a superstar, Drake has broken all the lines that can be broke. Drake gained recognition as an actor on the teen drama television series Degrassi: The Next Generation in the early 2000s.

Prince became one of Drake's longtime mentors after his son, Jas Prince, discovered the Toronto native on MySpace in 2006. Jas Prince introduced Drake to Lil Wayne and the Cash Money Records team, which eventually led to Drake signing with the music label.

"Best I Ever Had" peaked at number two on the US Billboard Hot 100, becoming Drake's first top-ten single.

But it's fair to say that no other rapper of his generation has been as consistent, or as consistently good. So what is Drake's best song? Which song from Drake do you enjoy the most?

It was a hard decision for the Wrap-Up Magazine to choose there favorite track from Drake. After it was all said and done, "Hotline Bling" was that one song that just stood out from the rest. "Hotline Bling" is a song recorded by Canadian rapper Drake, which serves as the lead single from his fourth studio album Views (2016).

Jas Prince Suing Birdman

Birdman is getting called on the carpet by the guy who discovered Drake, and the guy thinks Baby has a M.O. Jas Prince filed new legal docs demanding that Cash Money open the books on the millions of dollars Drake has generated for the label.

Jas is pissed because he’s gotten a grand total of $2 million for his find, even though he was promised a huge chunk of the profits. And there are reports Cash Money has made $40 million from Drake. So Jas — whose dad is J. Prince — wants to shine a light on Birdman’s money practices. Jas isn’t alone — Cash Money has already been sued by Lil Wayne and Young Turk, both of whom think Birdman has been shorting them.
