From the Las Vegas Optic

When thinking about hip-hop music, most people don’t think of Las Vegas, New Mexico. Local rapper Yung Tat the Prince would like to change that.

Born in San Antonio, Texas, the 29-year-old rapper, whose given name is Jonas Romero, was raised in Las Vegas by his father, Juan “Johnny Blike” Romero. Tat says his father moved him and his siblings to Vegas to give them a better life.

“My family has just always been in and out of jail,” Tat said. “My family doesn’t come from the best neighborhood over there. My dad was a Marine, and as soon as he had me, he brought all of us five kids down here.”
