Profile Bio Text
Williams, who emerged during the late 1980s as a recording artist for Geffen Records, has scored many hit singles, notably "Promises, Promises" (1989), "Talk to Myself" (1989) and "Every Little Thing U Do" (1993). The single "I`m Dreamin`" (1991), from the New Jack City soundtrack, became a #1 single on Billboard`s Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Singles & Tracks charts. After a six-year hiatus from recording music, he returned to the music scene with Real Men Do on the indie label, Renegade, in 2001. It received a glowing, flattering review in Ebony Magazine that summer. In between solo pursuits, he has been a contributor to Alex Bugnon`s "As Promised" with a jazzed up version of Mary J. Blige`s "All That I Can Say", featured on "In Your World" with Twista & The Speedknot Mobstas, a very up-tempo track on the soundtrack of " Doctor Dolittle", and on the Cafe Soul All-Stars CD with a single titled "Used To Be". Although he has been considered "out of the game" by some, there are numerous artists from several genres who give full credit to him for writing lyrics, performing, producing, editing, collaborating, and simply "doing a favor for a friend".
In 2005 it was reported that Williams died of an unknown illness, but this ended up just an Internet hoax
Williams reportedly has a son with actress Stacey Dash but this has never been confirmed,
Williams appeared in the successful motion picture film, New Jack City in 1991. He portrayed the role of Kareem Akbar, one of Nino Brown`s assistants.
