ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
William Berry aka Wildelux{ Pronounced Will Deluxe} was raised in the Bronx NYC, the origin of hip hop. Hip hop is not just a fad, but a way of life for kids, especially living in the ghetto of the innnercity. After the experience of growing up with hip hop and living the life of hip hop, Wildelux decided to take his experience to a higher level. After dealing with the ups and downs of the New York City streets, Wildelux decided to make a move out of state, to broaden his horizon in Music and do it professionaly on a world wide scale. With the help of a good friend, on November 17, 1993 Wildelux moved to Los Angeles, California to pursue his career as a major rap act. Upon arriving in L.A. Wildelux was soon working with big names in the music industry, such as Ice T and the Syndicate crew, Trekan the Governer, Body Snatchas ,The Silent Ones and he is now an active member of The Last Kind. Wildelux's Journey in Hip Hop has lead him to perform in many locations across the United States as well as overseas in Korea and Japan. In 2000, Wildeux along with his Last Kind members landed a recording deal with the help of Mike Nardone with Stray Records, which was based out of the bay area. They had a song featured on the "Stray from the pack" compilation called "Detonator". Soon after The Last Kind recorded there first full length International release album entitled " Revelations". Revelations was a critically acclaimed album, but due to poor promotions, the album lost steam before it got hot. Stray records went out of business soon after. Without a deal, or a machine behind Wildelux to put out his music, Wildelux took his chances in the independent market. Under his previous moniker Willmatic, Wildelux drop his first ep entitled "Sneak Preview" in 2003. Selling 3,000 copies worldwide, soon opened up many doors to Wildelux exposing him to a International following as well as local. In 2005 Wildelux teamed up with L.A. legend DJ Lord Ron, to drop a 12inch " BX 2LA Konnect part 1& 2,on Storage room productions label. It had the streets buzzing for a whole year and half. Soon after Will was asked to be featured on Djimon's album entitled ''Real shit". The French producer blessed Will with a track, and thus the song "Bottomless Kids" was born. He also teamed up with Freespeech on the same album to do "I live my life now". 2006 is ending and 2007 is beginning, and Wildelux is gearing up to drop his first full length album entitled " Hustlemania ". This album has been three years in the making, and Wildelux has teamed up with a bunch of hungry talented producers such as Sentense {One half of the incredible production team out Sweden} Sonic Energy, Djimon out of France, Mega lawge and Dj Lord Ron and many more. With helping hands from Rico Won out of Sweden, and Dj Devestate on the ones and two's reppin Elite Fleet, as well as Derek Strong and Free Speech, Will's sole purpose is to bring good and exciting hip hop back to the forefront. Stay tuned for Wildelux's album " Hustlemania", dropping in 2007!

Absolutely Phenomenal!
I think we can all agree that the quality of hip hop music in general has steadily declined over the course of the decade. That's because everyone is spending way too much time listening to the trash that is put out by mainstream artists instead of insanely talented artists like Wildelux. Wildelux a.k.a. Willy Stargel lays down an instant classic with his debut album "Hustlemania," giving us all what we've been thirsting for for years now. He's got pure talent, and that's the bottom line. He has the flow of Nas, the state of mind of Common or Talib Kweli, and the presence on the mic of 2Pac. His lyrics are simply incredible, his flow and wordplay are jaw-dropping and extremely consistent, and his rhyme patterns are genius. I honestly haven't heard such raw talent on the mic since Nas' "Illmatic".....................yes i said it, "Illmatic," arguably the greatest album of all time. If you've ever had the priviledge of listening to "Illmatic," that right there should tell you how great "Hustlemania" is!
As great as Wildelux's lyrics are on "Hustlemania," the beats are also not to be ignored. I mean what's an album with amazing lyrics with terrible beats, right? Every beat is spectacular, and each compliments Widelux's flow greatly. Everybody that helped produced this album should be very proud of the work they did.
Wildelux actually has real things to say on this album, unlike most artists in the genre today. From expressing his disappointment in today's hip hop ("Hungastrike," "Won't Die"), to the love for his son ("Journey J.B."), to displaying his incredible storytelling ability ("2nd Hand Smoked"), to his dedication and enfactuation for hip hop ("Here I Go Again"), you can't deny his commitment to the rap game. On the chorus of "Hungastrike," he raps, "What's with the songs coming out these days?/ Slapped together raps and rhymes, it doesn't pay." I think everyone that listens to todays rap can agree with that, and that's why EVERYBODY needs to give "Hustlmania" a chance.
Wildelux has been working on this album for 3 years now, and even though that seems like a long time, the quality of "Hustlemania" suggests that he's been working on it for much longer. I mean, the album is just THAT incredible.
I think it's great that some artists out there are still keeping it real, and caring about the music that they put on the shelf. Wildelux is definitely worthy of extreme publicity and praise, but for that to happen, people need to open their eyes and realize what hip hop really is.
If you are looking for real hip hop, then look no further. "Hustlemania" is the album you need. It is consistently amazing all the way through, boasting classics such as "Public Secret," "This 1 4 U," "Hungastrike," "Won't Die," "High Voltage," "Hustlemania," and pretty much every single other track on the album for that matter. Don't sleep on this album! Support real hip hop, and I promise you will not be disappointed. It is a real treat to listen to, and a definite gem in the rap game. Great job Wildelux!!!

"Either you hustlin' for something or you gettin' hustled for something........so i guess the question is, which one you rather be........the hustler, or the hustled?" (Wildelux, "The Commencement)
