There are two acts called "Prime Minister"; one from the USA and one from Russia. 1) Prime Minister whose real name is Andre Ford was born on February 13, 1970 in Rockford, Illinois. He has been Christian rap/hip-hop artist since the 1990s. In the 1600s Prime Minister meant "one sent from the king to spread the word from the king to the people". Prime Minister says that "he (Prime Minister) is sent from his God to spread a word to his people" and that is why is calls himself Prime Minister.
