Back at the top of September, Willie The Kid unveiled his newest album Capital Gains. The new 10-track album from the Michican emcee features Action Bronson, Curren$y, Roc Marciano, Eto, Kiyana and Tekh Togo. The rapper keeps his momentum going by sharing a brand new video for “Dirty Game” produced by V12 The Hitman.
In recent news, Willie The Kid can be heard on Waldo’s “Reeds Lake” produced by Sango. He also provided assists on “Mexico City” with VH$, Tedy Andreas, and Raz Fresco and Eto’s “Rusty Stainless” with Rome Streetz. It’s also worth noting his endeavors outside of rapping, as he joined on as a producer for the new documentary “I Too Sing America: Langston Hughes Unfurled,” the documentary going into detail about the life of the African American writer and activist who gained notoriety during the Harlem Renaissance.
Leading up to the official release of the project was his track “Egregious” and “Brewster’s Millions,” the Curren$y-assisted single over an Alchemist beat. Shortly after, he swung back around with another release titled “Cork Fee” featuring Action Bronson and production from Brady James as the final effort before the full project was unleashed. In 2019, Willie The Kid dropped the EP Heather Grey with Eto and V-Don. He also released the feature compilation Pearls, which totaled 20 tracks and boasted a lengthy list of features, including names like Styles P, Westside Gunn, Conway The Machine, Smoke Dza, Curren$y, Cory Gunz, Sean Price, and plenty more.
In one of his recent interviews, Willie The Kid delved into some things he’s currently investing his time, money and effort into:
“Basically, everything is based on ownership. My city, Grand Rapids, Michigan, made Forbes list for worst economy for black people and entrepreneurs. So I took that as a challenge to offset that statistic. One of the first things we did, we started a merchandise line called GRUSA. We are the official merchant for all the city apparel. That gave way to other opportunities, so we started a nightclub downtown. We’re the only African American owned business downtown for the past 18 years. That has a cultural impact.”
