EARLY LIFE AND CAREER

The eldest of three sons, Williams started out by tapping rhythms on school desks. He attended Princess Anne High School where he felt somewhat out of place. As he told the London Evening Standard, “I lived in Normalville USA and I didn’t look like the average kid.” Williams eventually teamed up with friend Chad Hugo. The pair started performing together and later became the acclaimed producing duo the Neptunes. Another one of Williams’ early breaks came thanks to producer Teddy Riley, who asked him to contribute to “Rump Shaker” by Wreckx-N-Effect in the early 1990s.
