"I want to tour. I want to perform for different people," rapper Prince Harvey tells The Daily Beast. "Sh*t, I'll go to Antarctica for the penguins if they're feeling it."
With that drive and ambition, Harvey, 25, set out to make an album. But when his computer and external hard drive failed, he had to find a new way to record.
So he headed to New York City's SoHo Apple store.
There, Harvey recorded his entire album on a display computer.
The process took over 16 weeks, but, in the end, he made a complete album that featured only human voices. And aside from a few minor hiccups, like strict security guards or random store fire drills, Harvey managed it all without any expensive production.
He appropriately titled the album PHATASS, which cleverly stands for Prince Harvey At The Apple Store: SoHo.
