Lou Williams Talks the Toronto Raptors, Meek Mill, his label Uptown Sounds & More (Video)

July 15, 2014 0

Recently HHS1987 caught up with Toronto Raptors guard Lou Williams to discuss an array of things. We sat down with Lou live from the Atlanta Entertainment Basketball league to talk about Lou’s upcoming Youth Summer Basketball league, his music label Uptown Sounds and much more.

With the 2014 NBA free agency period underway, teams are looking to rebuild and add talent to their rosters and this offseason Lou Williams has been given the opportunity to take his talents to Canada. A early trade between the Hawks and the Toronto Raptors has sent Lou to the Raptors and he mentioned he is ready to start fresh in Toronto. When asked about being a Raptor, Lou spoke on the blessing of playing for the Hawks and playing professional in his hometown.

We also spoke to Lou about the civil work he provides for his community. July 14th kicks off the 10th annual Lou Willville Summer basketball where Lou and friends host a basketball camp for the youth of the Atlanta/Gwinnett area. The camp is for ages 7-15 and it runs from July 14- July 17 each day from 9am-3pm.

Basketball is Lou’s main focus, however he has also taken a active roll in the hip-hop world staring his label Uptown Sounds. We spoke to Lou about the label and what motivated him to start Uptown Sounds. Lou gave mention to always having a love for music and wanting to present his friends who shared that same passion with a opportunity to do something positive. Lou informed us that he has over 60 songs recording however at this time is main focus are the other artist he has signed to Uptown Sounds. Lou also briefly on Dreamchasers own Meek Mill’s current situation.

We couldn’t sit down with Lou and not discuss he love for sneakers. It’s well known by people close to Williams that he is a huge sneaker head. Lou mentioned that he has been collecting sneakers for over 15 years and his favorite sneaker of all time is the Jordan 3’s.

The interview was conducted by HHS1987’s Eldorado2452. The interview was shot by HHS1987’s Brian Da Director.
