Prince Kaybee says he is over making music that only sells; he wants to tell stories. 

The music producer and DJ seems to have found his footing as an independent artist and is becoming more vocal about the sort of artist he wants to be. 

Taking to his Twitter timeline, the DJ teased his next single and it received rave reviews from his followers, with one asking him to add an amapiano song to his album. 

“I’m not doing music for business any more. I’m laying down thoughts, telling authentic stories and, most of all, loving music in its essence, not what sells the most, been there done that,” he replied. 

The DJ had previously said he was evolving and had no interest in making street music any more.

“Thank you for giving my music a chance. I’m no longer an artist for the streets. I’m in a different space, a different time, street music is loud to me now. It makes loud noise and I feel I have betrayed the people I started with, but over time an artist will change. I appreciate you being with me on this journey,” he wrote.

In a clip he can be heard saying though it might've seemed he was not appreciative of his fans, he wanted to remind them that he sees them. 

“Just wanted to say I see the love, the overwhelming support for the new song titled Cathedral, I really appreciate you guys for being there for me on this new journey. It's a new single every month, I hope you guys enjoy the music.”
