Prince co-founded Rap-A-Lot Records with Cliff Blodget in 1987. He wanted to keep his stepbrother and friends from a life of crime and wanted to form a group called the Geto Boys. He signed a deal with Priority Records in 1991 and later with Noo Trybe Records and Virgin Records. DEA agents believed the label was a front for a drug trafficking network but the two agents were later convicted of corrupt conduct. In the 1990s, he declined to join Destiny’s Child but his son helped introduce Drake to Lil Wayne and Bun B which led to a label deal and executive production credits for Prince Sr. and his son. In 2015, he released a spoken word diss track and in 2018 he released his autobiography. In 2021, he helped revive the relationship between Drake, Kanye West, and Larry Hoover to raise awareness on incarceration in the US with a benefit concert.
