Bio

Although houston rapper wine-o's debut single, "pop my trunk" may have been booming from car stereos in 2006, he was not a rookie. During the late 90's and early 2000's, wine-o was a well respected and prolific christian rap artist in texas under the rap pseudonym Nuwine.
Born and raised Maurice Williams in houston's poverty stricken 5th ward, he spent most of his youth in and out of jail, selling drugs and stealing automobiles. His percarious, crime-laden lifestyle came to a climax when he was shot at a convenience store - the bullet entered through his check and exited between his eyes, necessitating that he be airlifted to hospital.
Not withstanding incredible odds, williams survived. Nevertheless, it took another impending crisis - a possible 15 year prison sentence - before finding salvation in Jesus. With a hard edged swagger reminiscent of his prior life, williams produced and released his brand of gospel rap under the Nuwine monkier. He refused to be labeled as a christian rap -- preferring "spiritual rap" -- in order to reach a wider audience.
Strong indicators of his success and mission were marked by his independently released album "ghetto mission" attaining spots on both the top rnb & contemporary christian charts in 2000 and also hosting his own tv show of the name "GM TV"
Having produced tracks for artists among the likes of mike jones and letoya luckett, williams began entering the secular hip hop music world and in 2003 released the southern hit "The hooker hooker" followed by the 2006 hot "pop my trunk" the song settled in the top 100 of the rnb/hiphop singles chart for several weeks in 2006. Now living in Atlanta ga.
Wine-o is back and ready to release his new album titled "A beautiful struggle" and with a half a million fans already anticipating its release, its sure to be a success.
