Princess Nauwisa Gets Up in the Mix

by Andrew Griffin         You know we had our King of Pop, we have our Queen of Soul, but on February 22, 1997 our Princess of Hip-Hop was born. Juanish Johnson, known to the world as Princess Nauwisa.  Princess Nauwisa started her career at the young age of 9. By age 11, the rapper, songwriter and actress completed her first full song, entitled Play Ground. Right then and there her parents knew that she had the talent that would take her to great heights. They knew it was time to let the world know that the Princess has arrived. Right away, the red carpet was rolled out for her. She began performing here in Chicago and her fan base started to grow. The kids all over Chicago were excited to know that the Princess of Hip-Hop was from their city. I had the pleasure of meeting Princess Nauwisa and I am very impressed by all the many things this young lady has accomplished. We sat down, laughed and joked with each other and then it hit me, “I’m in the presence of Royalty.” While performing all over the Mid-West, Mississippi and Tennessee, Princess Nauwisa was discovered by an independent label ( Engle Ward Entertainment ) in 2010. Immediately, the label signed her and out came her first official video, Girl Pants; It was enthusiastically received. Nauwisa’s next hit song and video was Squat.It had kids dancing all over the country!  Now it’s, I LIKE HIM. This song has been featured on WGCI and Power 92 gave mad love to our new Princess of Hip-Hop, giving her all the support she needs to take her to the next level. Now it’s here! Engle Ward Entertainment presents Industry Ready. Princess Nauwisa’s new album was released on July 8, 2011. The album has been getting national attention and Princess Nauwisa has upcoming shows in New York, Texas, and Atlanta. She recently graced the stage with other nationally known artists like Diggy Simmons, Jacob Latimore, and Chicago’s own Jawuan Harris. Other artists all over the country are receiving her with open arms. There is nothing more I can say but, God bless our Princess of Hip-Hop,  Princess Nauwisa. For contact and booking, go to or follow her on Twitter.
