Biography

Born in North London to Nigerian parents, Sean and Melvin Williams crafted their own version of the “American Dream” forever making it attainable to the rest of the world. Shortly after creating the group S.A.S – an acronym for Streets All Salute- and taking the monikers Mega and Mayhem respectively, the brothers relocated to Staten Island, NY. It was here that they became known as vicious battle rappers putting it down with the best of the best, from Harlem to Brooklyn. As they reached their peak they caught the attention of Industry heavyweights like Kanye West and Jim Jones. Their undeniable buzz could not be stopped. S.A.S

became the first Hip-Hop act out of the UK to be featured on American mixtapes since Slick Rick back in the 80s. With their reputation solidified in America and their status as Global superstars confirmed, the duo rapidly took their place in the forefront of the British Hip-Hop movement. And soon it seemed like they were well on their way to becoming Hip-Hop royalty: a 10 minute cross-Atlantic conference call with then Roc-A-Fella Records co-CEO Damon Dash (the other co-CEO being Jay Z ) officially made S.A.S Diplomats/Roc-A-Fella recording artists. The deal bought clothing endorsements and cameo roles in movies (including State Property 2) and three tracks on the Diplomats acclaimed second group release, Diplomatic Immunity. Sadly, this was only a few months before the most publicized break up in Hip- Hop between Jay-Z and Damon Dash. Never to sit idly by and wait for anyone to put them on, S.A.S proceeded to release ‘Streets all Salute’ in the U.K. in 2005. The CD and DVD release featured high profile appearances by the likes of Cam’ron, Juelz Santana and Nicole Wray.
