Pryslezz Releases Music Video for “Sideways” f/ Jason Derulo (Lil Wayne, Diddy) and Enters at #67 on Billboard Top 100 Charts
Los Angeles, California – January 22, 2009
Rarely has an emcee name been so appropriate as the one adopted by “Pryslezz”. Given his iconic moniker by a friend for his break dancing skills, the young Miami based ingénue originally from Ohio origin is a truly engaging personality on the mic.
The grit and grime of the Youngstown city streets, that are so prevalent with violence, has left its mark on the multi-faceted artist, which is evident in his music. Full of clever wordplay, Pryslezz is known for his ability to dispense an endless chain of syllables so relentlessly you can almost hear drum machines gasping for air as they struggle to keep the pace. A seasoned vet, Pryslezz has opened for numerous artists including Lil Jon, Dwele, Jason Derulo and Mike Jones as well as performed alongside Wu Tang Clan, Common, Slum Village, Mos Def, Talib Kweli and Nas during the Rock the Bells Tour.
