Roosh Williams says if he’s remembered solely as a Houston rapper, he’s doing something wrong. But he drove home that point Friday night with a farewell show featuring some of the city’s most formidable hip-hop acts.

Williams and friends drew a lively crowd to the Safehouse, a small venue just outside downtown Houston. The lineup included Doughbeezy, Lyric Michelle, Kyle Hubbard, T2 the Ghetto Hippie and Neko.


The charismatic rapper, who grew up in Houston, is moving to Los Angeles to pursue his doctorate of Jurisprudence at the University of Southern California.

MR. PRESIDENT: Roosh Williams has big plans for the future

“I’m happy that he’s following his heart and moving, says Lyric Michelle. Her own “”Misdirection” album is one of the best of the year. “I remember meeting this fast-rapping guy years ago, thinking how dope he was. I’m very proud of all he’s done and what he will do.”

Williams says he will continue rapping but also hopes to pursue acting and voiceover work. His 2015 album “Unorthodox” went Top 40 on the iTunes hip-hop/rap chart.
