Willie The Kid pulls his lyrical “Stray Blade” in preparation for The Fly 3. Any fan of the Grand Rapids MC knows that this project has been in the works for a minute. I’m looking forward to hearing the third installment of the classic series. Look out for “The Fly 3” and the short film on January 20th. We will definitely have that posted. Peace.

Willie the Kid, Reks, and Term on the same joint…..you know this is fire. Oh yeah, Statik & Alan the Chemist on the production! Fuck yes!
It’s great to see Willie The Kid back on the scene! I have to check this A-Villa album out because the tracks I’ve heard so far are fire.

New music from Willie off his “Midwest Willie” mixtape. Major props to Jonathan Jelks for sending this joint over.
A few years back I was checking out Lattisaw Tapes (Official Blog…check them out) when I heard some audio from an MC named Willie the Kid. At the time I’d never heard of him but that would quickly change. I did a search online and came across, “The Fly 2”. The first track I clicked on was a track called “Dragon Fly”. That track put me on to WTK real quick. The beat was mesmerizing and Willie’s wordplay was on point. Once I heard the rest of the tape I was really impressed. I started downloading other mixtapes and kept up with his music ever since. There are many MCs who can rhyme but there are few who can truly create music. The beats and the rhymes come together as one. Willie has shown this on his previous releases especially “Aquamarine”, “The Fly 2”, “Masterpiece Theatre”, and “The Living Daylights”. If you haven’t checked out any of Willie’s music, make sure you check out his catalog (after you read this of course). You won’t be disappointed.
Willie, first off let me thank you for taking time out to make this happen.
Stroy: What are some of your earliest hip hop influences? Was there a monumental moment when you were like, “This is what I’m going to do!”
WTK: Indeed. My father was the most hip hop dude I knew when I was a kid. He collected tons of vinyl – and would convert the albums to cassette tapes for people in the neighborhood. I remember being very young and he would play like LL, EPMD, Public Enemy, NWA artists like that in the crib or in the car or wherever. And I always memorized and recited every song, man. Those were my early memories of hip hop.
As far as inspiration to actually do it myself, that came later. The Rap City/Yo MTV Raps era – Nas, Jay-Z, Puff and Big, Mase, Snoop and Dre, ATCQ, Wu-Tang, those were some of my early influences. I remember running up to my father one day, way before being a rapper was a ‘cool thing to do’ telling him this is something I’ma do one day.
