A veteran DJ with close to 40 years of experience. An avid music lover since birth and collecting records
since he was a toddler. Starting out at age 11, doing his first job as the house party Dj for his family and
friends in the neighborhood, Prime honed his skills graduating to making mixtapes, djing school dances,
even hosting his own hotel event while in high school. Developing his beat making and production skills
while in college, Prime was given the opportunity not only to be the main Greek and Campus party DJ at
Bowling Green State University, but to take his talents to the airwaves of primetime DJ of the campus
radio station WBGU 88.1 (Power 88). After a year, he became the Urban Director for his success of
turning a subpar station into a competing and rival station against commercial stations in Northwest
Ohio area.
Using his dorm room as a primary location, Studio B-237 (his actual room number) was launched. In that
one room, he co-founded his first rap group, Black Minds of Music, which eventually recorded more
than 70 songs, performing in local shows and shined as opening acts for X-Clan and Minister Louis
Farrakhan over the course of his college career.
PRIME continued to produce Hip Hop tracks after college, working with local artists in his hometown of
Columbus, Ohio. He contributed to the fast-selling Columbus Mob album “MIDWEST FUNK
SOUNDTRACK”. PRIME produced Jakk-N-Jill’s “The Chronic” and assisted production on Insane’s
“Tahitian Treat” and AKA & Eddie B’s “The Outro”. Tai-Pan, PRIME’s friend from college, was next to be
blessed with the skills of PRIME on his first full-length album entitled “THE RISE, THE FALL, THE RISE” on
Educated Records, exclusively produced by PRIME which sprung the single of the same title featuring
Terri Whitlow formerly of Teen Dream. The summer of 1996, PRIME released his debut solo effort,
“BUSTOWN FLAV”, a cassette EP which became the hottest collection of independently produced songs
everywhere on the Columbus streets. The hit single “Bustown Flav”, the personal confession of “Ax
Anybody…” and “Dis Style (featuring Ci-Dubble and Taleeb)” are among the EP’s brightest moments.
Because of its success, PRIME was rewarded with opening show dates with Redman, Jamal & Keith
Murray; all of the respected Def Squad. Spring of 1997, Columbus witnessed the exclusively produced
Taleeb “TALEEB: VERBAL TACTICS”, which featured the hit singles such as “I Smell A Blunt” and “Verbal
Tactics”. But with the radio success of “The Circumstances”, PRIME has been the most sought-after
producer in the city.
Since then, PRIME has released two stellar CD’s THE BIRTH OF MR. JOSHUA: the breakneck pace
experience and his self-titled CD THE TALENTED MR. LINDSEY. Besides his own work of music, PRIME has
completed two classic albums for EKLYPZ PERIOD…”E=MC2″ and “IT’S A PLEASURE 4U2 MEET ME”; two
hot EP’s for SILAS…”Unlucky 7 Vol. 1″ and “Unlucky 7 Vol. 2: Private Thoughts Gone Public” as well as a
full length album entitled “Mr. Nice Guy”. PRIME has also worked and put together a very hot and
marketable CD for female sensation MECHIE whose mix of hip-hop and R&B are currently making her
debut “Reality Check” a hot street commodity.
Besides production, PRIME has since ventured into graphic design and album consulting. Mentoring and
assisting up and coming artists with designs, ideas, and concepts geared for better marketing and
exposure for those he has worked with. Some of the artists he’s worked with are the late Camu Tao,
