Prince Paul

Prince Paul, aka Paul Huston Sr., was born in Queens and raised in Long Island, New York.  He was the DJ and producer for the first hip-hop band, Stetasonic, and produced De La Soul’s classic 1989 album 3 Feet High and Rising, along with other artists such as Queen Latifah, Big Daddy Kane, Gravediggaz and Slick Rick, as well as three Grammy-winning albums for comedian Chris Rock.  He can also be seen on various VH1 specials and hosts the Scion AV All Purpose Show and Paul vs. Paul with his son, DJ Pforreal. He is at work on a new album due later this year.

Handsome Boy Modeling School were Prince Paul (best-known for his work with De la Soul and Stetsasonic) and Dan Nakamura (a.k.a. Dan the Automator), hugely successful hip-hop producers in their own right. They released two CDs in total: So...How's Your Girl? in 1999 and White People in 2004, collaborating with a mix of diverse artists, ranging from hip-hop heavyweights Del tha Funkee Homosapien and RZA through to The Mars Volta and indie-darling Cat Power. Unfortunately it looks as though they won't be producing any more now that Prince Paul has left the group in 2006 over disputes with Dan.
