Pop Heavenly and the Heavenly Boyz
As a child, Will began his musical career writing lyrics for and performing with his group, Pop Heavenly and the Heavenly Boyz (P.H.B.), which consisted of his four brothers and his father along with himself. Nicknamed "the Gentlemen of Rap", P.H.B. crossed cultural and generational boundaries with their family-oriented message of positivity and hope amidst a dying world.

Experience
During the 10 years that the group was active, Pops and the Boyz toured the country a number of times, performing in countless major cities as the opening act for many famed entertainers. This gave Willie the experience, foundation and professionalism that he'd take with him throughout his career. Coined as the main writer of the group, he also sharply developed as a lyricist, receiving accolades from numerous noted personalities such as Ben Vereen, Jesse Jackson, Kirk Franklin and Treach of the rap group Naughty By Nature to name a few.

Break Up
After the break-up of Pop Heavenly and the Heavenly Boyz in early 2000, Willie Will decided to trade in his flashy suits of the group for jeans and boots and take to the streets of Seattle, giving birth to his solo hip hop career.

Belief
Fueled by a solid foundation and belief in God, Willie's desire to see lives impacted by his music ignites his passion to deliver his street-edged rhymes over cutting egde beats,

Debut Album
In the four short years of his solo career, Willie Will has indefinitely exceeded all expectations. In October of 2000, he dropped his first solo release, "The Rhythm and Wisdom System", selling over 1500 units out of his trunk on the streets of Seattle's metropolitan area.

Buzz
In 2001, the CD created a buzz that led to airplay on Seattle's number one top 40 radio station, KUBE 93 FM. The radio spins opened the door for countless performances in the city's premier nightclubs, rap concerts, talent shows, block parties, high schools, churches, juvenile detention centers and some of Seattle's major music venues.

Sophomore album
In 2003, Willie Will released his second independent CD, "Premeditated Worda", which has sold over 1,000 copies to date in local stores and on the streets. The album got him a nomination for best rap artist at the 2003 NorthWest Music Awards, sponsored by Seattle's number one gospel music station, C 89 FM. It also brought him more radio airplay by KUBE 93 and C 89, local television exposure on a number of occasions, and most recently, a tour throughout the South opening for some major names in hip hop music.

Compilation
Willie Will can also be heard on the Holy Hip Hop Volume 3 compilation (2005) with the track "You Never Know".

Label
In September 2006 it was announced, that Willie Will has signed with Beatmart Recordings.

Studio
Willie Will is scheduled to begin recording out at Lab West in Portland, Oregon at the beginning of November 2006 with Todd Collins and Big E.

Videos
On May 9th, 2007 his video "Shine" premiered on the Beatmart Recordings site.

New release
