Q: where did "Williamsboy" come from?

A: Hello again Anonymous! Williamsboy was born out of my younger years. I grew up poor, and when anything would go missing in the neighborhood, or there was vandalism, or other crimes committed.. my brothers and I could hear people saying " must be them Williams boys " so I took the negative and made it a positive as a reminder of where I came from and how I've managed to not become a statistic. Thanks for the question.
