In Detail

It was never easy for Prof. Green. Raised by his grandmother, the rapper was always learning the hard way. Indeed life and music have always been intertwined for the young rapper, but it wasn't until he was 18 that the two were brought into focus by the suicide of his father, and his emotions, ever since, have been reflected in the raw and often passionate line of his inspirational lyrics. Prof. Green is a brand champion to several global blue chip brands and spends significant time investing and encouraging young people who may not have a desire or confidence to pursue a formal education. In 2016 he received the MIND Making a Difference National Award rewarding his dedication to campaigning about men's mental health through his documentaries autobiography, music and media work.
