Originally scheduled for release in November of 1987 - following the double-album Sign o' the Times by a matter of months - Prince pulled The Black Album weeks before its release, guaranteeing it near-mythic status. Urban legends spread like wildfire: Prince believed it was too bleak to release; Warner Bros. balked at its explicit lyrics; no CDs were ever pressed, and all the LPs were destroyed. That final rumor was certainly untrue, since bootlegs immediately appeared, and when it finally received official release in the fall of 1994, nearly every die-hard fan already had the record
In 2004 he finally seriously started with some producing and gave himself the artist name: Prince ov Darkness. In 2005 he performed at his first event in his own town The Hague, it was a small party. After that he performed in Germany, Switzerland and England.
