The best kept secret in music


""Melvin Williams Is Putting Local Hip Hop On Your Screen""

— When a hip hop video drops onto your timeline from a local artist, it’s pretty likely that Melvin Williams is behind the camera. For the past two years, the 23-year-old videographer has been making commentary and music videos specially tailored for artists like Promise The Unbreakable, Chris Cool Peeples, Jah'Manji Beats, B Chaps, their friends and their friends’ friends. “It started with Promise..." - Katie Kusack, David King -TheAltMagazine

""The Bright & Resilient Strength Propelling Promise the Unbreakable""

— When Promise Soto was a child, he would come home from school each day, drop his things at the door & go into his room to write for hours. He wrote short stories & poems about random things that came to mind such as playing outside, watching a grasshopper making its way through the backyard or his mother’s cigarette laying on an ashtray, burning right down to the filter. If a pen & paper were nearby, Promise was creating a story. “I was a real silent kid,” Soto says. “A lot of my stories had to do with perseverance..." - Katie Cusack, Deanna Fox, David King - TheAltMagazine
