Essence Carson Debuts ‘Love Letter’ Video Under Pr3pe Rap Alias
WNBA basketball player Essence Carson commands the court as a guard for the New York Liberty but she also has skills on the mic. Known by the rap alias Pr3pe -- pronounced "Preppy" -- the New Jersey native is currently crafting the release of Broken Diary, her debut album.
One of the first tracks off the LP is "Love Letter," an ode centered on love and its ups and downs. Pr3pe filmed a visual for the song, which was shot in the U.S. and Istanbul, Turkey.
"'Love Letter' is a look at relationships through Pr3pe's eyes," she tells The BoomBox. "A mixture of love, disagreements, frustrations and trust issues. 'Love Letter' serves as the ballad that reminds troubled lovers why they came together in the first place."
Broken Diary is set for release later this year.
