V Don also dropped a project in September, his collab project with Lord Apex titled Supply & Demand. He also shared Black Mass earlier this year in February which included guest verses from names like Dave East, Smoke Dza, Kadeem, and of course Willie The Kid.
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.”
