In a 2011 interview with TV host and writer Tavis Smiley, Prince talks about chemtrails, violence in Black communities and how comedian and activist Dick Gregory influenced some of his thinking.
Prince shares the time Gregory told him about chemtrails — the long clouds left after a plane flies by. The artist begins to recollect about seeing jets fly over his neighborhood as a child and the instant change of emotions. He told Smiley that within a few minutes the chemtrails left behind would change people’s personalities.
“Everybody in your neighborhood was fighting and you didn’t know why,” Prince said.
