With his love of blending styles, Patrice has called his mix of reggae, soul, funk and hip-hop ‘Swaggae’. The 37-year-old Rhinelander with German and Sierra Leonean roots started out in the Cologne rap scene and released his first songs in the 1990s. Today he lives in New York, Paris and Cologne and has released his seventh studio album Life’s Blood this fall.
