Passion for music since he was an infant. I can recall many times when Alonzo was a baby his dad Joshua Williams would rehearse poetry, and Alonzo would be in his baby swing he would try to mimic his dad’s every word.

Over the course of Foreverboy’s career, he has been given the opportunity to collaborate with top of the line producers and mainstream artists, as well as indie artists.
Foreverboy took a downward spiral due to family hardship, which landed himself in/out of jails/prisons. The last straw occurred when he was charged with first degree murder of a close child-hood friend. Found not guilty, Foreverboy has matured into a conscious man, has put his adolescent behavior in the past, and is now focusing on rebuilding his life.
