Soul Williams — Love, Soul: The Musical Letters Collective, Part 1


Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
It’s easy to see why many secular types consider Christian music a joke. Badly produced, pre-programmed Casio backbeats and plastic saxophones providing the soundtrack to a holier-than-thou message inspires snickers and winces from even those least jaded. OKC’s Soul Williams aims to and succeeds in knocking some sense into that rightfully stereotyped scene.

Hip Hop/Rap

Louis Fowler
From the opening R&B samples and powerful horn section that triumphantly blasts the arrival of a new hero on the scene, Willis’ The Understanding perfectly captures the innercity swagger of a blaxploitation movie icon.
