On September 30, DJ Drama/Don Cannon protégé Willie The Kid will be releasing his debut album, Absolute Greatness, via Aphilliates Music Group/Asylum Records. A Grand Rapids native and current Atlanta resident, Willie knows his city is a crowded market, yet one character trait sets him apart from the rest: he is more Driven than his peers. WTK proves this point with powerful lyrics, over the electric guitar production of the DS Bros (Vess Dynamick & Ron Boogie). Driven should be excellent warm-up music for upcoming sporting events (right alongside Remember The Name and We Made It). While Willie the Kid might be overshadowed by Tip, Kuntry, Thicke, and J-Hud for the September 30 drop charts, he certainly has enough passion for the music to compete with all four of them.
