First Listen: The Mark Williams gets the steppers going on new single

(May 28, 2019) The Mark Williams is definitely a hustler. Singer, actor, live event producer, writer and television host are just some of the many hats that he wears in reality. Sometimes the line between a legit hustle and the game can be as blurry as that line between reality and fantasy, and The Mark Williams steps across both lines with his latest single “Ain’t Nothing Wrong.”

The tune finds this buttery tenored musical veteran inhabiting the role of a street hustler who may wear a few hats himself. Williams emotive tenor might remind some of Ronald Isley, and Isley’s Mr. Biggs persona creates a template of a man who made his fortune as a practitioner of the dark arts of the streets. Numbers runner, drug dealer, pimp.

In a way, “Ain’t Nothing Wrong” is a soundtrack song that is in search of a movie. The track definitely has a cinematic quality. Williams and producers Ku Dolla and DJ Funky paint landscape with lyrics that tell the story of a man who runs the streets with a combination of fear and icy persuasion. This mid-tempo track is propelled by sleek bass line that is punctuated by horns, syncopated handclaps and synthesized strings. Check it out here.
