On the 10th Birthday of Kanye's Graduation, Tony Williams Discusses "Good Ass Job" & Releases Money

The World Famous Tony Williams takes his solo career to a new level on the 10 year anniversary of "Graduation."

10 years after contributing to five songs on Kanye West's Graduation album, The World Famous Tony Williams releases the first visual from his solo album which is slated for release this fall. Tilted Money, the cinematic visual sets the pace for the G.O.O.D. Music affiliate's forthcoming LP To Gain The World which includes credits from Marsha Ambrosius and Kanye West among others.

The ODD Sox backed video chronicles a post-apocalyptic society where the money is donned by the face of President Donald Trump. Pharoahe Monch warns the audience that, "A man in debt is a man still trapped," while Tony graces the track with the same neo-soul melodies that hip-hop royalty has consistently called on him to contribute.

They say life is about choices... making the right ones, that is. I can remember vividly the GRADUATION release and having the conversation that we had finally reached the third album of the tetralogy and saying, "Just one more to go (before GOOD ASS JOB)". When I look back ten years ago at the choice made not to pursue that GOOD ASS JOB, I ask myself, did I... he... did we make the right choice? I've contemplated... do we make those choices in life based on what we think will bring us the most personal satisfaction or do we make them based on what we believe to meet the approval of those dearest to us. As in Ye's case, such would have resulted in him pursuing that GOOD ASS JOB - going down the corporate route and making us all PROUD ASS PARENTS and us NOT missing the "Old Kanye"! Ultimately, my choice is to use all that is within to help keep the banner raised which proclaims: "Nobody can squeeze me into the box, the role, not even, the music genre that they have prepared for me." After all, isn't the end goal to get the MONEY (legally,lol), no matter what it takes.- TWFTW
