Drfunkenberry.com has learned exclusively that Prince was at Warner Bros. Records yesterday.  Prince, who is town for the BET AWARDS this Sunday, stopped by his former record label to discuss business.

Prince was signed to Warner Bros. in 1977 until the late 90's. Things soured between the prolific genius and the former label giant around 1993, when Prince abandoned his birth name and wrote the word "slave" on his face until his emancipation from the label.

We are told that Prince's appearance at the Warner's office had employees in awe.  At this time, we do not know what was discussed, whether it was old material, or if perhaps a new deal for an upcoming project.  When we do know, you will know.

Prince and Warner Bros?  What's up doc for real.....-Dr.FB

    This is only your guess my friend (or do u have some scoops for us?)…..i ‘d wish to see Prince & WB give respect to the Purple years but there will be nothing more in the end!

  3. This is a big deal or it wouldn’t have been announced here. Trust me

  4. I ‘m not sure that something Big is coming, u know each year Prince meets with his former record label to discuss business .
    Last year with WB, there was an early project, with deluxe versions, unreleased (the outtake Pussy Power from the Black Album sessions ), no beep on f. .. & S. .. words, but Prince requested so much money for each album that WB killed the project ……so nothing change in Prince’s world!

  5. Something big is going to happen. Prince is going to give us some good news soon………….

  6. Ecstatic!!!!

    Doc. I can’t go without saying how gratiful I am for you keeping us Prince fans updated.

  7. Don’t keep us waiting too long for any upcoming news on this Doc! ‘kay? ..lol

  8. This is the first Prince news item that has my mouth dropped to the floor! I’m shocked at this news and I hope and pray that something good came out of this meeting. I’m also with Kelvin, maybe an ownership deal of some kind could happen but more than anything, I hope that something is worked out that will be in the fans favor. A win-win could come out of this IF things go right between the two. Time will tell.

  9. Doc thank u for the news…you are so on it, and I like that. It sounds very positive….somebody’s finally taking the “high road”. Again, thx doc.
