While being so heavily influenced by your surroundings could hamper one’s sound as an artist, Prince uses it to his advantage. From his earliest work to his studio debut Until Then, Beau has personified versatility. You are as likely to hear BYP rap about falling in and out of love, as you are to hear him croon about getting a Half & Half from the carry-out joint down the street.

Above everything else, Beau Young Prince's music is a reflection of his upbringing in DC. The southeast native clearly studied his city's musical roots and implemented them into his music. Traces of jazz, hip-hop, and perhaps most notably, go-go music are all present in Beau's work. Prince, a true DC native, blends elements of the city's most iconic beats and sounds—everything from Chuck Brown flair to Marvin Gaye lyricism bubbles to the surface in BYP's music. As a classically trained bassist, there is no sonic terrain too foreign for Beau to explore. Fortunately for listeners, unknown terrain is precisely where Beau Young Prince makes his most innovative, moving creations.
The self-proclaimed “Groovy God” has also amassed a great following online and throughout social media. Until Then has over 1 million streams, and Prince has gained thousands of followers on Twitter and Soundcloud. His reach has also translated into the creation of a global fanbase. Prince has collaborated with artists all around the world, and has had his music featured on The Fader, Hypetrak Revolt TV, and more. He has also performed at SXSW three consecutive years, and has opened for stars like Playboi Carti, Post Malone, Vince Staples, Young Thug, and more while headlining prestigious venues like the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio making BYP a rock star in his own right.
