Who is Prince's Friend?

Under the name Prince’s Friend, I've carved out a niche for myself as a Prince historian and commentator in the entertainment industry’s world of music fandoms. Our channel has almost 400 originally-produced videos so far and is growing every day. We work independently of Prince’s estate but remain aligned with the overall mission of keeping Prince’s legacy alive through explorations of Prince songs, music, movies, messaging, news, as well as his posthumous celebration events and music releases. Prince’s Friend takes some deep dives into Prince’s career which spanned over five decades and looks closely at all directions of his journey.

The Project

Prince's Friend is almost three years old now. On my channel, I raise discussion topics (such as the recent talk on the title of Musical Genius), review albums from Prince, his associates, and other artists who both inspired his greatness and were inspired by his genius. I attempt to break down every topic and offer a unique perspective for conversation. Building a thriving community is the primary goal of what we do, and we've been successful in this effort thus far.

In addition to video essays, Prince news commentary, community building, and having a fun time, Prince's Friend in the process of reviewing the entirety of Prince's discography, from beginning to end... in order of release. With a number of studio releases, singles, proteges, and side projects, there is enough music to review for years to come, and even more material to dive deep into his legendary vault as more posthumous releases come out. 

As a sample, here are a few of our favorite videos on Prince's Friend, including Video Essays, Reviews, Discussion, and Top 10 Lists for fun:







What I Get Out of This
Becoming a Patron and supporting the channel is the surest way to ensure we're able to continue what we've started and keep it going for a long time. Our videos are informative and introspective, which has earned us the most subscribers of any Prince-themed Youtube channel (besides the actually Prince channel, of course)! It opens up lots of opportunities for Prince's Friend, including: 
  • The ability to Upgrade our Equipment (i.e. microphones, cameras, lighting, setups, etc.)
  • Helps to cover expenses for travel, food, and hotel for events, such as Celebration at Paisley Park
  • Devote more time to devote to the channel (as Time is Money is a lot of cases)
  • Pays for giveaways, and I love to give CDs, posters, and other things away to people on my channel
  • Aid in upgrading the channel in general, such as providing video captions and researching SEO strategies

What You Get Out of It

The best thing about helping is knowing that you are making a tangible difference for Prince's Friend. However, for those interested in a little bit more than self-esteem and a sense of well-being, there are a few things we do provide for our Patrons:
  • Previews to upcoming videos and the ability to give feedback
  • Early access to videos before they hit the public
  • Access to blogs and personal thoughts from Prince's Friend
  • Patreon is another platform, and a fast one, to contact me directly, so being a Patron gives you access beyond other subscribers.
