is an American rapper
and former member of the rap duo Organized Konfusion

in 2002 and then signed to the Warp Records
subsidiary Lex Records
in 2004 with three EPs and his debut solo album "The Slickness" featuring production from Lex Records own Danger Mouse
, along with Madlib
and British producer Richard X
. In 2006 he released his second album also own Lex Records, although the album lacked the production quality of The Slickness
with only Madlib
returning from the previous album.
His latest album, Saga Of The Simian Samurai, features production from Kool Keith collaborator TomC3.
Prince Po has generally garnered positive reviews from the music press, but has never been able to emulate the success of his former bandmate Pharaohe Monch who signed to major hip-hop label Rawkus Records after the break up of Organized Konfusion.
