Coming Kings Vol. 6 – Katt Williams
FACE CARD As a father of seven, Katt Micah Williams makes the best of his spare time. In the past year alone, Williams, 33, has played Radio City Music Hall, acted alongside Eddie Murphy in the box-office smash Norbit and had his own one-hour HBO comedy special, The Pimp Chronicles Pt. I. It's gotta be the hair.

Being a father taught me that 75 percent of the things we think matter don't matter at all. Most of the things that we forgot after we became adults is the information that it takes to get us to the next level.
My rap career is solely for me. It wasn't done out of necessity or need for extra finances or more acclaim. When I was 13 years old, I said I was going to do it, and every day I try to cross another thing off the list of things I wanted to do when I was 13.
People are jealous of my disregard to their jealousy
