At 17 years of age, Prime began his journey as an emcee in 2006 competing in Australian freestyle battles. In 2007 he teamed up with Purpose to compete in the World Rap Championships, and made it to the top of the Australian division alongside 360 and Anecdote. Prime’s performances in the WRC helped him build his following, and gained a lot of respect amongst other emcees and fans of rap. His freestyle ability and calmness in the most heated of battle situations led Prime to be viewed as one to watch among his generation of rappers from Australia

Prime is one of the founding members of the Adelaide collective Pagen Elypsis, releasing in 2007 their 007 The Mixtape debut, followed up in 2009 with their second mixtape before dropping their debut album One Way Ticket in 2010. He further developed his all round skills beyond the battle scene with this string of releases, evident through his concept formulation and execution, mixing aspects of his previous battle career through his recorded song catalogue.

The following year, Prime put out his solo debut Good Morning, which was a free digital release and won the 2011 award for Best Online Album. After a handful of carefully selected features, in 2014 Prime put out his widely well received second album, Sweetest Victory Of All, and is now currently working on another release.


Since Prime first stepped on the scene, he has always put a high level of value into writing and lyricism. His pen game is among the best and he’s often noted by other Australian emcees as one of their favourite rappers. Whether on a feature, mixtape or album, Prime always has depth to his verses, witty punch lines, is a great storyteller, and overall a quality emcee in and out of the booth.

There has been talks of Prime making his highly anticipated return to the battle arena, however a suitable match up from Australia or beyond has not been locked in as of yet for the underrated emcee.
