Biography

Tony Williams, though today, known primarily as a background performer, has dubbed himself, the World Famous. Having travelled the world over, more than, five times as the background vocalist for the iconic Grammy Winning rapper, Kanye and the actual artist who wrote, produced and performed the vocals on a majority of the hits that he performed from Minneapolis to Melbourne, he has earned the name. Tony has worked with some of the most influential and prolific rappers of this Millennium, Jay-Z, Nas and, of course, Kanye. Not only has Tony’s fame abroad made impressions on fans, but on other performers from Brazil to France. Tony has performed with a French rapper who rapped in French and produced the collaboration for the French music market and a Brazilian rapper who rapped in Portuguese for the Brazilian and Portuguese music markets. Tony had been performing long before his debut with Kanye, having founded several bands from his late teens up until his debut on the Kanye’s College Drop-Out. It is his awe inspiring appreciation for nearly every music genre and the fact that he has “soul” authentically that makes him a priceless artist. He is an actual product of the culture that birthed R &B. As a result, his ability to bring to life authentically what so many artists are forced to imitate or sample, urged artists like Kanye and Jay Z to collaborate with him.
