B.G. The Prince OF Rap's real name is Bernard Greene. He was born in Washington DC on September 28th 1965. Like so many artists before him, the U.S. Army brought him to Europe. This is how, after graduating from high school, he arrived in Germany in 1985.

After he left the Army, he began to live of his talents of singer and dancer which he had discovered during his scholarship. "Everything began in a ", he tells. "My first musical experience was in a Rhythm & Blues style, which still remains my favourite music style".

Without any difficulty he made his place on the Frankfurter scene, awarding first places in many rap contests. So much talent could not remains unnoticed, and he was soon contacted by the producers who would launch his international carreer. Among these internationally recognized people was Jam El Mar and Stefan Benz. With this team B.G. could really deserve his surname 'The Prince OF Rap'.

His first official single, Rap to the World, was recorded by Monster Of Loud-Ness. Released in 1990, it scored big in German clubs.

It was followed by Give Me The Music and Take Control Of The Party. He released his first album The Power Of Rhythm in 1991.

His biggest hit in the US came in 1991 when he reached number one on the Hot Dance Music/Club Play chart with his 4th single This Beat Is Hot. The single made it to #72 on the Hot 100 and #44 on the Hot Black singles chart. He followed that up with Take Control Of the Party, which reached #2 on the dance chart the following year.

Eurodance brought him back, along with a new album entitled The Time Is Now, in 1994. Among the releases from this album, let's mention the huge Eurodance hits Can We Get Enough (# 19 in Israel), The Colour Of My Dreams (# 10 in Israel and a big hit there even nowadays in the clubs), or Can't Love You (strongly inspired from Kim Wilde - If I Can't Have You).

For BG the public shows are as significant as the presence on the radio and in the charts. "Live appearances", he says, "are particularly important to me. There I can really emphasize fully my qualities of rapper. In studio I can only show a part of what I can do". His shows are thus already well-known, and they allow BG to make his public discover his new creations, like Stomp. Released in 1996, this track contained some fast rap inserts, carried by very housy beats. 'It's a cover of a song by Brother Johnston, a song I always enjoyed. The idea of transposing it in the 90s made me enthousiastic'. This single announced a new album, with 'more raps, and more soul in the accommodations'. Entitled Get The Groove On, it did not have the success expected.

The same year, BG contributed as songwriter and as co-producer to Mr Partyman's single Hey Mr Partyman. Single was recorded at The Edge Of Reality Studios and released under ZYX Music.

1997 : Bernard contributed to 2 euro-rap songs (this style was very fashionable at this time) : Da Clique - Player (as composer, songwriter and producer, with the usual team Michael Rödiger and Marko Kranjcevic) and Green - I'll Pray, as a songwriter (with Chris Schwaab, Heinz Felber, Stefan Benz and T. Greene).

1998 : Bernard co-wrote and co-produced euro-rap single Bush-Clan - Children Of Today

2004 : BG was featured by Big T for the single Bad Boy. Janet Taylor also contributed to choirs.

2005 : the German project Jet Set covered BG's hit Colour Of My Dreams. As for BG, he is now working at a museum near Wiesbaden in Germany where he moved in September 2005. He was said to be planning to release an album in 2006.

2010 : BG announced that he would collaborate with eurodance project BPM on a brand new track that should be recorded in January 2011.

2015 : in September, during The Real 90s show in Mayence (Germany), BG performed a brand new song, No Limit. Later, he posted photos from the shooting of No Limits that he confirmed as his forthcoming single No Limits. Single would include 3 remixes from DMN records, made by Real Thing, Remundo and Randy Norton. After No Limits, a second single for 2016 could possibly be a song called Bruce Lee, and would be released under DMN Records. He also planned an album for next summer and published some some song demos on his Soundcloud page.

2016 : BG teamed with Lane Mc Cray from eurodance project La Bouche, to record single I Can Feel It. His new single No Limits was released in April.
