Throwback Thursday: Teenage Prince Royce On "The People's Court"

This is loco! We stumbled upon this amazing video of 17-year-old Geoffrey Rojas (aka Prince Royce!) on an episode of The People's Court. 

Apparently, little Royce was involved in a civil dispute over the alleged stealing of "beats." Luckily for the bachatero, who grew up in the Bronx, Judge Marilyn Milian sides with him and his friend, Jino. She even gives Royce a valuable piece of advice -- one he apparently takes to heart, since he's now one of the hottest Latin artists in the world! 

Watch this hilarious clip from 2006 -- we can't help but chuckle at Royce's awkward demeanor and oversized suit! He's come a long way, no?
