Anthony "Oddessy" Williams Jr. is an artist/producer for. Born on April 24th, 1989 .Raised on the west side of Cleveland, OH.
His mother (Angela Myers) and father (Anthony Williams Sr.) separated right after the birth of his little sister (Rina Myers). He was mostly raised by his late grandmother, because his mother had to work two jobs, just to put food on the table. With his father coming in and out of his life, he never had a role model.
From 1st to 8th grade, his grades in school made merit and honor roll. Sometimes the attendance was bad, but overall he was in school on time. But as he hit 9th grade, things slowly but surely started to fall apart. He started to smoke weed at the age of 14. His mom and dad didn’t find out until he was 16. He started hanging with the wrong crowd of people, skipping school to smoke, or being tardy on purpose. The year he was suppose to graduate, he found out that he wasn’t going to, so he dropped out.
But music was always a part of his life, since age 6. Nobody knew of his musical talent until the age of 12. One of his inspirations is the Chi-town rapper Twista, Because of his fast rapping skills. He grew up trying to listen to and to learn everything he says in his lyrics. Bone Thugs n Harmony are also one of his favorite hip-hop groups. Not only because they can rap fast as well, but they are also from Cleveland. At 12 years old, he found out he had another gift.
. In 2006, Oddessy and Cortesy started doing shows around Cleveland, where they started to get noticed a lot. As the months past by, Cortesy was on the verge of moving to Tampa, Florida. In 2007, Cortesy comes back to Cleveland, reuniting the two once again.
A little after, they met up with Hungry & Humble’s own Nick Kelly and M. Stevens. Together, they started working on the classic double disc mixtape album entitled "Hungry & Humble", which Oddessy, M. Stevens, Cortesy, and Hungry & Humble’s c-will produced the tracks. A little while after that, the team split up on bad terms, but Cortesy and Oddessy stayed inseparable.
Until the end of 2007. He had to put his music on hold, so he can go back to school.
During that time, he kept his lyrics up to date by listening to the latest music, which lead him into picking up a few more rap styles. He started to gain more influenced, like T.I., Ace hood, and many more. A year later, he hooked up with his long time friend Chris Mays and Deon Ellis (Savage for Moneybags Ent.). They recorded many songs that you can find on youtube.
M. Stevens offered Oddessy to be apart of the Hungry & Humble family once again. Without hesitation, Oddessy accepted. He then was the producer of Hungry & Humble. Two months after this, he met Comazinski, and with Hungry & Humble in his heart, they hit it off with the same hunger in music.
Two years later, Oddessy is back on his own, working on his up and coming debut mixtape entitled "The Anticipation is Over" with FamTight ENT. One song was recorded for it, but it had to be delayed due to move to Wheeling, West Virginia for school.
He grew up with no other role model besides music, and all those involved in his journey. He is passionate in his career and all that he has become. And still to this day he is recording and making music with his drive to make it in the music business along with his many supporters. He is and will always be known as Oddessy.
