I knew I had heard of these guys somewhere before.. that’s right.. Early on in The World Famous Tony Williams: Finding Dakota Grey Mixtape- the first skit, a young lady gets my attention just as I’m exiting the stage- she wants a backstage pass. It’s not, however, conversation, a photo, or even an autograph that she wants from yours truly, she wants to meet S.O.S.
The two D.C. area M.C’s (Nick and Nate) just released Average Joes, their latest mixtape project, and simply put… my dawgs iz spit’n!! Rumor has it there’s even a Tony Williams cameo on the song Hopeless Romantic.. This is my “download of day!!”

The Just Wright Movement is dedicated to supporting positive African American films, filmmaker, actors and producers. Our mission is to send a message to the film industry that we want to see good, family oriented movies with substance that portray African Americans in leading roles and in a positive light. More impor…tantly, that our dollars count and we will support these types of films.
Yo!!! Did you see that Tony Allen dunk???
Back on my “state of the industry” soapbox, but this time I’m letting Bilal do the talking. After fulfilling his obligation with Interscope, he is now with an independent label that he says allows him to “experiment … and do what’s inside of me and follow my own ear and spirit.” He goes on to say that Interscope would “totally dumb down everything for mass production and mass sales.” Dumb down? For WHO? Mass? Who is that? That’s YOU (or US)!! That must mean that they think we’re DUMB!! I hate it when someone attempts to insult my intelligence!!
I’ll say it again.. support our independent artist and always support those that are consciously trying to deliver pure and uncut “good” music. Go purchase Bilal’s new LP, Airtight’s Revenge.
I love it when I see artist come into their own after years of hard, hard work. Sewuese has been “gettin’ it in” for a minute now, and it shows. I remember our first meeting in Nice, France in a the hotel lobby after a summer Festival performance a few years ago. I had just gotten up from chatting with George Clinton and a few others from the P-Funk mob when she approached me and introduced herself. I remember her thick brittish accent, “excuse me .. Mr. Williams … hey I’m Sewuese… I’m from London (or something like that, lol). I also remembered that she seemed to be a determined artist and was about her business.
Occasionally I would receive an email or phone call from her, and we’d briefly talk shop and then generally end up with me giving an opinion on a track she was working on. As time has gone on, those conversations have gotten fewer and further between until today when I looked in my mailbox. I hope that you’ll take the time to get to know and enjoy the artistry of this U.K. artist as I have, and if you happen to see her, please let her know that World Famous looking out for her.. we might need that collabo!!!
