(In his own words) My name is William Brewer and I’ve been performing poetry for over a decade and rapping, most recently as Willing, for about half that time. I live in Austin. I write to fulfill a neurotic impulse and rap as catharsis. My work and I spend a lot of time brooding together, but also celebrating. It’s dense, technical, and declarative — more incomplete dissertation or confession-booth diatribe taped in secret than festival banger. An Exercise In is my fifth EP and I honestly feel like not a lot of people rap this good.
