J Prince Honored in Houston, Breaks Ground on New Community Center
Rap-A-Lot Records principal J Prince was honored in Houston on Tuesday (January 30) when Mayor Bill White and council member Ronald Green presented him with a proclamation declaring January 30 “James Prince Day.” Prince was recognized for his 20 years of community service to the city of Houston and its people. Over the years the Rap-A-Lot CEO has made it a point to give back to his community by handing out toys to children at Christmas, offering classes to children and senior citizens at his Rap-A-Lot Jensen Street headquarters and providing housing to over 500 people uprooted by Hurricane Katrina in 2005. On January 26, Prince broke ground on a multi-million dollar community center that he and his wife Mary are building for area residents. The center is located across the street from his Prince Boxing Complex and will provide various activities for neighborhood children such as athletics and computer courses.
