Biography

Born William Thomas Voner Jr., music, ironically, was not Will’s initial creative expression. At an early age, his innate creativity was sparked when he took an interest in visual arts. But eventually, just seeing his art wasn’t enough; it felt almost as if something was missing. After years of searching for what had been yearning inside to surface, Will found his true calling-music. “My music stands out because I bring a distinct sound to the table. It’s very upfront with a bounce all its own,” explains Kill Will. “I try to incorporate different styles.

In early 2003, Will began to write raps. Because he didn’t have a producer, he began tinkering with Frooty Loops computer program to make his own beats. In no time, he had mastered it. But after a couple of months, however, he put the microphone down altogether to concentrate on producing instead of rapping.

Providing the polyrhythmic percussions, chaotic chords and dynamic bass lines for Birdman’s 106 & Park mainstay single “Fire Flame” as well as Birdman featuring Trick Trick’s baller fest “Stuntin While Shinin,” rapidly emerging Cincinnati-based beat maker Kill Will is well on his way to becoming one of the biggest names in hip hop production.

Knowing that he had the talent to capture the attention of millions, Kill Will scoured the city of Cincinnati in search of anybody who would listen to his music. From banging his beats at local open mics to entering into producer battles to even giving away free beats to other emerging artists, he used every avenue
available in the city to gain exposure. Eventually, because of his undying ambition and crowd-moving production skills, Kill Will gained status as one of Cincinnati’s hottest producers.

He made so much noise that in late 2009, he linked up with Big Von of Make It Happen Management. In just over a year of building a buzz in the music industry, things really started to pick up when producing the soundtrack for Dallas rapper B-Hamp’s single “Fooly.” Kill Will's career really began
to take off with Birdman’s “Fire Flame” hitting Billboard’s Hot 100 chart and as well as claiming the number one video on BET’s 106&Park.
