J Prince is an American Businessman with a net worth of $45 million. A lot of J’s wealth has been accumulated from being the CEO of Rap-a-Lot Records, a Houston-based recording label that he founded back in 1986.

Prince’s record label, also known as Smoke-a-Lot Records is famous for its most popular act called the Geto Boys that put the South on the hip hop grid. The label has focused on southern gangster rap and it has proven to be a success. Geto Boys was the first nationally known act of the record label while Devin the Dude was with the label for 15 years until 2008, becoming the label’s longest running act.
