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.

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.
