Discover our interview with Anthony Williams and listen to "LOYALTY"

After being featured on US publications, and while releasing his first official single “Dead Or Alive” in 2013, Anthony Williams gained an unexpected international following in the secular scene as a Christian rapper.

Determined to not just be confined to the church circuit, Anthony would often be found performing at shows and open mic events amongst urban acts rapping about his immense journey from London gang associations to how he eventually found his way through incredible events and being born again.

“Loyalty”, his latest release is another unapologetic crossover into mainstream by offering a buoyant afro swing instrumental produced by Methadon Music of Awesome Recordings, that contrasts effortlessly with the deep meaningful lyrics depicting how friendships and relationships could lead to betrayal.

Straight from it’s August 2021 release, “Loyalty” has been on the DRT Global Top 150 Independent Airplay Chart at #107, is currently being featured on DittoMusic’s Chartbreaker Playlist on Spotify with 28k streams at #5 and peaked at #3 on the iTunes UK Hip Hop/Rap Charts.

Anthony Williams’ unique brand of UK Gospel Rap is without the averseness of tackling uneasy topics and themes often avoided amongst acts from that genre. He is set to continue towards the popularity achieved by similar artists by the likes of Jahaziel, Simply Marvinous, Cadet, Nu Kreation and Guvna B just to name a few.
