Hey out there ATS.. ready for some soul?


William Bell is an American singer/songwriter who was born in 1939, in the Memphis heat.

What a look!


He signed with Stax Records (Issac Hayes, Otis Redding, Staple Singers also on this label) and released his first lp in 1967. He is still making music, and took a Grammy home in 2016.
I learned of William Bell from RZA in the movie Repo Men. Thanks, RZA!
Enjoy the good, smooth vibes, ATS! Thanks for stopping in!

DJ Khaled - Another one

Good afternoon zosi


This genre is probably the most sampled by producers, especially when it comes to hip hop/rap. Thanks again
