William Welch a.k.a. Slik Willy "The B.R.K." is a Hip Hop/Rap artist from Macon, GA who brings a West Coast feel to his Southern Rap style. He is a genuine, truthful person who cares about his audience and it shows through in his lyrics. He makes it his personal goal for each song to speak to people on a personal level, as well as having it sound unlike any other.
It has been his main goal for several years to be signed to a record label who will support his unique style and allowing his music to be seen in the industry next to the same artists that inspire him. To accomplish this goal, he dove head first into learning how the business worked. If he had a question about music, he found some way to answer it.
Over the last 11 years he has released two albums while he was in the group The Midnight Rydaz, three solo albums, and he has been featured on 10 mix-tapes. He has done many live shows including most recently Customer Appreciation Night at Runaround Sue's in Marietta, GA and The Homegrown Hip Hop Underground Showcase at The Masquerade in Atlanta, GA. He has also maintained the title of Undefeated Freestyle Champion of the East Coast, which is how he got his start in music. At the age of 10, he would spend his free time developing ciphers in his head to use in local rap battles where his opponents were almost always some years older than he. With friends cheering him on, it was not long before he began using the rhyming talent he had gained from the ciphers to make actual songs.
With his "anything is possible" mentality and his goals to make a name for himself clear in front of him, he shows no signs of stopping because to him, the sky is the limit.
