Local artist Greg Williams, who performs as Chief and TheDoomsDayDevice, moved to San Marcos in 1998 to attend Southwest Texas State University. He used to host a specialty show on the KTSW 89.9 called Underground Sounds and worked at Sundance Record.
Part of the regular lineup at Triple Crown, Chief says the style of his DJ/emcee/performance act is hard to classify. He does allows a certain kinship with hiphop, which was born at about the same time in the late 1970s and grew up, as he sees it, on a parallel track with Williams. He says, “I feel like me and hiphop could be brothers or cousins.”
