Rising visual artist and videographer Chief Will, is beyond gifted at what he does. Since finding success in the music business working with acts such as Sharife O’Neal, Rubi Rose, The Migos, DJ Mustard, and Nipsey Hussle , he continues to impact the lives of some of music’s brightest stars and rising superstars. Will decided to have a a career as a visual artist back in 2016 after deciding not to pursue basketball after college.
When asked what he wants people to know about him he responded “I want people to know that as a former athlete, I have a chip on my shoulder about how I go about my business. Some people tried to warn me this line of work would be tough, but I’m a competitor by nature and I let that same drive to be better than my opponent push me in everything I do, especially my work now. I just want to be the best,”. His desire to make it as a professional outside of sports is why he gets the respect of the people.
Growing up in Crenshaw home of Nipsey,Ice T and Ice Cube, he credits both of his parents for his success as they play a big factor in his life. He credits his father for helping to give his life some much needed structure and the tools necessary to make what he wanted out of life. Being a Crenshaw native, it seems only fitting that he cherishes working in the studio with the late great Nipsey Hussle and Mustard above many of his other accomplishments.
“Nothing beats that night at the studio between DJ Mustard and Nipsey. Just being there first had to capture that was amazing. Mustard had been trying to connect with Nip for a minute and so for me to be there was just surreal timing,” he said.
