Williams AtLas’ is one Hip Hop Sister who has been on my radar for a number of years now. I first heard her music on some tracks Kenny Dubb had produced and she had featured with him on them. In a time where people are always saying real Hip Hop is dead, it’s very reassuring to know that there are still real musicians out there keeping the art alive. In the case of AtLas’, she really has no choice due to some major Hip Hop ties plus being from the region where it all got started.

One of the stand-out contestants I gave a big fat, no doubt about it “Yes!” to was Stevin Marsh. He came in with his bigTexas cowboy hat, that sexy Guitar (I love guitars) and he did his thing! We all asked him a few questions and then he gave us a LIVE performance for part of his audition.  I found him to have a very Beautiful and Powerful voice, excellent string skills and I’m sure he’ll do quite well in this competition as he has in many music competitions over the years.

I came across her music on Myspace, back in the Myspace days… and was completely mesmerized by her skill. She does not need the help of Auto Tune to do what she does with her God given gift and I truly believe she is underrated. If you listen to the interview she did on Kitty Williams LIVE and check out some of her tracks we played, you’ll see exactly what I’m talking about. This woman needs to be on every radio station and invited to do collaborations with all the hottest Artists who are worthy of her vocal presence on their albums. I know, I know. Yes, I’m talking her up real good. But look up the live interview when you get the chance. For now we’ve
