Have we become so disconnected as a people that we are more concerned with the filter on the photo of our food than we are with eating it?
Have we become less social now that we have social media in our lives? Do we judge more and love less? Why do we feel the impulse to take a selfie every time something interesting happens in our lives?
Prince Ea has made an amazing mind opening video about how social media is disconnecting us from each other, check it out below!
Born and raised on the North Side of St. Louis Missouri, rapper Prince Ea has a sound unlike most artists coming out from the Midwest.
Possessing a great song writing ability, he combines creative, thought-provoking verses with humor, wit, passion and hard hitting punch-lines. From his YouTube videos which have garnered over ten million hits, Prince Ea has developed a loyal Internet fan base.
Prior to Prince Ea’s most recent Internet success, he has also been featured in both national and local publications. In 2009 VIBE Magazine declared him Vibe Verses Grand Champion and he received a full page article in Vibe’s June 2009 edition. Also in 2009, Prince Ea founded and formed an organization called Make SMART Cool (SMART, an acronym for Sophisticating Millions and Revolutionizing Thought). The organization seeks to promote positive social change in various concrete ways from speaking at schools, organizing community events/benefit performances, partnering with community based organizations and setting up educational mentorship programs.
In 2011 Ea was selected out of thousands of emcees across the country, as the winner of the Trojan Magnum Live Large Project 2 contest— hosted by Ludacris. Ea won $5,000 and a trip to Miami, Florida to perform alongside Ludacris, DJ Khaled and Busta Rhymes in front of a crowd of 50,000 people. In 2011 Prince Ea was crowned Best Hip Hop/Rap Artist (Solo) in St. Louis by the renowned Riverfront Times Newspaper.
