Rolling Loud Artist Roll Call: Pryme Rothstein

by .

Jamal Williams, best known by his stage name Pryme Rothstein, is on the come up.  Looking up to and idolizing the hustlers on the corner while growing up, Pryme wanted the fly whips and chains they had. As a kid, seeing all this planted the seed for desire to want the same things. Living in Nassau Bahamas, he realized it wasn’t exactly the suburban American experience which in turn made him value perseverance and responsibility, as well the desire for a better life. Shortly, he moved to Miami and this is where he really started to take his music career seriously. Though his first move to Miami was rough, he pushed forward past all the distractions and found refuge with music an developing his craft. Rothstein’s exotic punch lines & delayed delivery is what sets him apart from everyone else in the game. Pryme is currently in the studio working on Pryme Example, which is expected to feature QC’s very own, Rich The Kid. You can pick up his debut mixtape, The Effort, and catch him at Rolling Loud Festival in Miami on February 28th.
