Kanye Puts His Cousin Tony Williams On, He Pays It Forward With Video Contest

The name Tony Williams may not be immediately recognizable, but if you own any Kanye West albums then you've surely heard his voice. Williams has contributed his vocals to numerous cuts from his cousin's first three discs, and now it's his turn to get some shine with his debut album, King or the Fool, on deck for '09. The buzz single "Dreaming of Your Love" has been floating around for a few months and recently Tony launched a contest for people to send in original videos for the song. The contest ended last week and five winning videos were chosen to win the prize package, which includes a trip to one of five international destinations to hang with the G.O.O.D. music crew. One grand prize winner will be chosen from the bunch and snippets from the winning video will appear in the forthcoming official "Dreaming of Your Love" music video. I'm personally pretty pumped about this whole thing because my good friends at G.Light Films are one of the winners. I go way back with Ervin Green and Warren Wesley, the production duo behind G.Light, and they've been making major moves in the DMV, creating top-notch music videos for local acts Debórah Bond, Wordsmith and The Co-Op. After this big win, my boys are gonna be movin' on up like the Jeffersons. I don't know what the four other winning videos look like, but after seeing my friends' submission I'm sure you'll agree that they deserved the honor.
