One of the industry’s more interesting qualities is its uncanny ability to produce those few innovative producer/musician/songwriter collaborations that bring a unique “something special” to whatever music project they are working on.

They have an unequaled degree of persona, innovative ideas, and represent a certain unexplained vision of life and music that the masses can identify with. Not complacent with just being the front man for multi-platinum R&B Supergroup Mint Condition, Stokley Williams is adding a new chapter to his career as a Producer and this music wunderkind’s goal is to bring “the musicality back to music”.

Currently, Stokley is one of the selected team of producers for the Award-Winning Hip Hop Artist, Wale and his new single, “LoveHate Thing” featuring Sam Dew.

The new single is from Wale’s upcoming new album release, THE GIFTED on Atlantic Records set for release June 25th.

One of the most recognized vocalists of his generation, Stokley was also tapped to co-produce five additional songs on Wale’s new album that features Meek Mill, Cee Lo Green and Jerry Seinfield.

Stokley also lends his signature lead vocals on the introductory song, “The Curse of The Gifted.”

According to Stokley,

“As a producer, I’m looking for the musicality in the music. There are a lot of genre’s to choose from & I wanna continue to mesh them together with live & electronic instrumentation in a way that makes sense. There’s a lot of music out here, I’m just trying to give a different dynamic that will help inspire the artist to wanna sing or express themselves in ways they haven’t before.

A lot of times you may just have 2 sections in a song & sometimes that’s all it needs. I just tend to like intro’s, vamps, bridge’s, outro’s, uncommon quirky sounds, etc. Still making it accessible for the listener may be a challenge sometimes but I think we all should welcome that challenge, both artist & consumers.”

Don’t worry R&B fans, Stokley is giving up is day job yet but just broadening his scope.
