Prince Ea

Location: Campus Center Plaza

Prince EA, is an Award-winning American rapper, music video director and rights activist from St Louis, Missouri. Prince Ea was born as Richard Williams, and his alias is derived from Sumerian mythology ("The prince of the Earth"). In 2011, Prince Ea graduated Summa Cum Laude, with full scholarship, from the University of Missouri St. Louis, with his BA in Anthropology.

In 2009, Prince Ea formed a movement he called "Make 'SMART' Cool. SMART is an acronym for "Sophisticating Minds And Revolutionizing Thought". He was upset at the present state of the music industry and attempted to "promote intelligence to everyone, everywhere and integrate it with hip-hop. To create and nurture, without discrimination or preference, a community of free-thinking individuals under the singular purpose of promoting the ideals of education, intelligence, unity and creativity throughout the world at large." (en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Prince_Ea).

Prince Ea was featured in the 2010 December issue of DISCOVER magazine for his academically provocative single “The Brain,” where he was dubbed “The King of brainy hip-hop.” In 2011 he won the Riverfront Times "Best hip-hop artist in St. Louis" among many other awards.
