Artist of the Week: Prezi

Written by Jack Robertson

Charles Gardner or better known as Prezi was born in raised in the Hunter’s Point Neighborhood of San Francisco. He always had an interest in music, however in 2015, he was involved in a fatal nightclub shooting and barely avoided jail time after being acquitted of all charges in 2016. His first hit “do better” originally was a regional hit until becoming way bigger after a remix was made with bay area legend Mozzy as well as fellow bay area rappers OMB Peezy and Philthy Rich. The remix is what made him a household name in California. Prezi followed with his first mixtape “Do Better” which featured Lil Blood and Tree Thomas. He followed this up with his first collboartive project “Hood Presidents” with Philty Rich and his first album “Still in the Hood” featuring Yhung T.O., Derez Deshon, Nef the Pharoah, Philthy Rich and Mozzy.
