(AllHipHop News) As a club owner and financier, the “character” of Alonzo “Lonzo” Williams played a significant role in the N.W.A. biopic Straight Outta Compton. Williams is now telling his side of the story with the new memoir N.ot W.ithout A.lonzo (N.W.A).
The founder of Kru Cut Records – which featured eventual N.W.A members Dr. Dre, Ice Cube, and DJ Yella – tells the stories of how Dre and Cube became Hip Hop legends. N.ot W.ithout A.lonzo also presents portions of the group’s biography that Straight Outta Compton did not include. The book is described as the prequel to F. Gary Gray’s blockbuster film.
William’s career in the entertainment industry has included turns as a DJ, club owner, record company owner, songwriter, publisher, speaker, and author. He is also a contributor to the Schomburg Research Center.
