From Producer to Label Head: WLPWR’s Newest Adventure“Discover, develop, deliver; repeat.”
Updated: Dec 19, 2022
Three years ago, I first spoke with producer WLPWR about his incredible work on Big K.R.I.T.’s 2017 opus, 4eva Is A Mighty Long Time. Born William Washington, the Atlanta-based maestro told me about the elements of perseverance that permeated his work with K.R.I.T..
“When you have somebody as talented as K.R.I.T. who was always told, ‘Not yet,’ or, ‘The people won’t understand it,’ to finally get the chance to do it, it just makes for a really awesome situation,” WLPWR said all those years ago. That was 2017; the year is now 2020, and life has changed for WLPWR, who has since tapped into the same energy K.R.I.T. brought on 4eva to start his new label venture: BNDWTH.
After taking a production hiatus, WLPWR built—yes, with his own two hands—a 4,000 square foot space in Atlanta, his very own “production compound.”
“I wanted to multiply my musical output as a producer,” WLPWR explains. “My goal was to bring all my resources to one place and invite the game to us. I got a 4,000 square foot building in Atlanta. Myself, my partner at the time Angela, and my contractor Hector, along with the hands of many friends, built it out for two years. We touched every piece of wood, installed every wire, hung all the sheetrock, installed the floors, and decorated. The final result is a creative compound and company.” Read More Here >>>
