Prince Ak Does it All for New Jersey



New Jersey is a state in the Mid-Atlantic region of the Northeastern United States. It is a peninsula, bordered on the north and east by the state of New York; on the east, southeast, and south by the Atlantic Ocean; on the west by the Delaware River and Pennsylvania; and on the southwest by the Delaware Bay and Delaware. New Jersey is the fourth-smallest state by area but the 11th-most populous, with 9 million residents as of 2017, and the most densely populated of the 50 U.S. states. New Jersey lies entirely within the combined statistical areas of New York City and Philadelphia and is the third-wealthiest state by median household income as of 2016.
New Jersey was inhabited by Native Americans for more than 2,800 years, with historical tribes such as the Lenape along the coast.
It is also home to talented musician and 1/3 of the group '050boyz', Sharif Wilkins, otherwise known as Prince Ak.

The Newark, New Jersey artist has had the chance to collaborate with some of the industry's iconic names, the likes of Redman, Treach and Raekwon, to mention but a few and said that his number one goal, besides that of establishing his brand of course, was to put his State on the music map.
"I'm heading towards my 8th year in the game and I've been fortunate enough to collaborate with hip-hop legends such as Treach, Redman and Raekwon, The Chef Lords Of The Underground etc
"My goal is to go as far as I can in the industry, brand myself, stay independent while at the same time dropping one jam after the other. Most important of all, I'd like to continue opening doors, not only for myself but for the greater State of New Jersey. I believe that it is home to some of the best talent on the planet", he said.

Nothing beats touring the world and doing so with some of your own idols, Prince Ak cam attest to that.
"One of the most surreal moments was getting the chance to tour China and the world With Trigger Treach & Kay Gee from Naughty By Nature", said Prince Ak

With the passion and talent that he possesses, not forgetting a strong list of hit songs, it is no surprise that Prince Ak can boast of a Grammy nomination.
"I received a Grammy Nomination for a song called Who U Talking To by Mysty Blanco AKA Mysterious from P Diddy's 'Making The Band' that made it onto the charts in over 30 countries", said the rapper.

Not many would've been aware of this but Prince Ak is also a filmmaker and already has quite a number of productions to his name.
"I've produced 2 films, Zoo, a movie starring Treach, Jermaine Hopkins, JD Williams Jay Paris, Tobias Trullivon etc and a film called The Black Van that also featured Treach, JD Williams Jay Paris and Sticky Fingers", he said.

For the musician/filmmaker, it ia all about putting in the work, and as such he is busy in the studio cooking up a number of projects that we are sure will hit the market soon.
"As of right now I have a project that I'm doing with Tru Trilla & Riq da kid produced by Dj Reek Gs I'm also working on a new project with Tru Trilla & Trigger Treach.
"I also have a distribution deal with Kevon Glickman for an International song that I have with a Dominican artist named Zawezo called Que Rico, he raps in Spanish & I rap in English", said Prince Ak
