He used to belong to the group "Kid Power Posse" and the duo "Déificos," meaning "belong to God." recorded his first album of Spanish reggae, "Los Nenes De La Medicina" in 1992. Johnny Prez made Spanish reggae popular in Puerto Rico. Since then, he has released three Reggaetón albums, "El Dragón" in 2003, "The Prezident" in 2005, which reached number 14 in Billboard's Latin albums' chart, and "The Knockouts" in 2007.[1] However, many feel he has not received the recognition that he deserves.[2]

In 2011 he returned with his brother Pedro Prez in a duo called "Tha Prez". After this, they released their first album as a duo called Tha Prez, produced by Los Tranz4Merz.[3]
