Conversations with Johnathan Williams

Today we’d like to introduce you to Johnathan Williams.

Hi Johnathan, so excited to have you on the platform. So before we get into questions about your work-life, maybe you can bring our readers up to speed on your story and how you got to where you are today?
Well, I started as a beat maker in 2015-2016. But I’ve always had a fascination with music. And At a young age, I would write lyrics to beats I heard on the radio n stuff like that but never really pursued it. It was more of a hobby to pass the time, a “Freestyling with the homies” kind of thing, but once we got our first “FLStudio” program, we started dreaming of what could be.

Do you know? I would hear people on the radio like Lil pump, n Lil Xan, n stuff like that, n I would think to myself, “These guys made a million dollars off this B.S?!” So, I decided to pick up the pen n pad n Start writing to the beats I made. They weren’t the best lyrics at all, haha, but to me, at the time, oh man, they were the greatest ever!! I mean, now I look back n I think, man, how funny to think back on my thought process.

But, with my background of being on my own, suicide attempts, and overcoming adversity, all at a young age, I have a story to tell, and I’ve only just begun to say it. Would you care to take a walk with me?

I’ve also done motivational speaking for native kids as far as New Brunswick, Canada, I also do live videos on my Facebook page, and I always try n leave everyone with some positive food for thought or something motivational because I know what it is like to feel all kinds of emotions and all kinds of thoughts but don’t speak on it.

A few of my major inspirations. Hmm, too many to name from. But let’s name a couple—Tech N9ne, Joyner Lucas, NF, Eminem, Kendrick Lamar, Snoop, Dre. Shit, the list goes on n on, haha, but yeah, that’s to name a few. My biggest motivation to get me to keep waking up every day and checking goals off my list are my babies first, my family, and of course, the big man upstairs, my lord n savior. From where I’ve been to where I am now, I never thought It’d be what it is. I recently opened up a music label, “Savage Kyngdom Entertainment LLC,” and now I’m throwing shows with my business partners at “Gs First Studios” to showcase our music and put other artists on a stage to showcase their talents as well. I just dropped my new merch line, so be sure to hit me on my Facebook page or Instagram at “@_NativeKyng_” to check out all the different designs and stay up to date with the upcoming shows, music, news, and much much more. Also, be on the lookout for my new music dropping and #SavageKyngdomEnt artist “Qilla” new music coming soon.

Thank you all for taking the time to check this out. I appreciate every single one of yall, and as I always say, “Stay Blessed, Less Stressed, N Lezz Feel Nothing But The Best.”

-NK (Native Kyng), CEO of “Savage Kyngdom Entertainment LLC”

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall, and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Some struggles I’ve had to endure along the road. Man. I’ve dealt with everything from shady people close to me, to bad business deals, to lack of motivation when I hit them with certain “Moments” of doubt or whatever we call it. I’m my own worst critic, man. So I’ve done told and even screamed some of the worst things to myself. I’ve taught myself to keep to myself n only rock with a certain few n not trust so easily. I struggle every day with that. Life has taught me a lot, n I continue to learn each n everyday. But yeah, those are just some of the struggles I’ve had to endure.

Thanks – so what else should our readers know about your work and what you’re currently focused on?
Well, for my 9-5, I’m a journeyman carpenter. I have been in that business for around 14 yrs now. And if you’ve ever worked with me before, in anything for that matter, you know, wassup with Me lol I give my all in any and everything I do. Make sure I can walk away from whatever it is with the thought of “I did that, shhh,” you know? Haha

What I’m most proud of. Honestly, I have a lot to be proud of and thankful for. My kids, my progress with personal growth, my life in general. I remember at one point, and I prayed for everything I have now, n I’m far from finished. Thankful I’m not where I once was, you know? And I think what sets me apart from others is my energy. I don’t toot my own horn too much, but I’ve been told this on more than one occasion, haha.

Can you talk to us about happiness and what makes you happy?
My kid’s man, these guys don’t even know what they do for me daily. Seeing them happy makes my world great when they achieve something. It makes me so proud. As they grow older, they teach me just as much as I teach them.
