Biography

Legacy affectionately known as Legs, was born Arias Williams and raised with love amidst the turmoil and violence of Los Angeles during the 1980's and 90's. Although surrounded by violence, fear and poverty, Legs was able to cultivate his mind and talents, using the world around him as inspiration to make a better life and world for himself and his family. All his life Legs knew that he wanted to be a leader and a voice for those who seemingly had no voice, no outlet. Growing up a fan of Hip Hop music, Legs experienced the power of music as an influential tool for educating and inspiring people, just as he was educated and inspired as a teenager by artists such as Outkast, Ice Cube, Goodie Mob, Lauryn Hill, Black Star, Bob Marley, and Curtis Mayfield. But it wasn't until Legs’ junior year in college, when he was blessed with the opportunity to spend a year abroad in the West African nation of Ghana, that Legacy began to dream of life as an artist. It was there, up close and personal, that he saw the plight of people in Africa, and the power that Hip Hop music had in the lives of his peers on the continent.
Witnessing the far reaching power of Hip Hop inspired Legs to dedicate his life to making music that would inspire the world to change.

Legacy, an avid reader with an appetite for learning, politics and social change began to dedicate his life to rhyming about justice, spirituality and the history of black people. Although unpopular amidst the bling of the era, Legs has continued to swim against the tide of the mainstream, staying true to his own voice and inner calling, all the while using his time underground to cultivate his gift as an emcee, producer and guitarist. In 2004, Legs founded 4Real H.O.P., an independent record label with the sole mission of "expanding minds thru beats and rhymes." In 2006, 4Real H.O.P. released its first project "Lady DJ and the 4Real H.O.P. Allstars," a compilation featuring some of LA's most talented producers and thought provoking artists.

Now after a long gestation period, Legs has given birth to his self-titled debut album. "Legs," set to release in 2009, is an introspective and inspiring blend of songs demonstrating his evolution as an artist and human being. The album features production from LD4, Tracc Daddy, 2020, Leeclaybang and Legs himself, and features collabs with artists from all over SupaCali like on the throwback party track "Legvooa Party" featuring the 909's Brother Dvooa. Legacy stays true to his roots as a voice against hypocrisy and injustice with his scathing track against the Iraq conflict in "The President's War," and then slows it down with his sister and brother from another mother in "Black Boy" featuring Jimetta Rose and High Hopes. All in all, Legacy is an artist that is not to be slept and on and shows with this release that despite the circumstances and setbacks that the Legs keep moving on!
