Benefit Set for "Turntable Genius"

Efforts are underway to help a Meridian man who left a major mark on music.
Known as "The Turntable Genius" on T-91, 41-year-old Arthur Williams co-produced many of the songs for noted rapper MC Hammer in the 1990s.

At one time he was even named the number one mixer in the U.S. Last month he suffered a massive stroke and now members of the local music industry are coming together to offer assistance.

"He needs support very bad, because he's unable to get the medicine he needs," said Doctor Graham. "It cost $700 or more per prescription and that's rough on a lot of people."

"It makes me feel blessed that all the DJs are coming together for this cause," said Williams.

A special fundraiser for Williams will be held this Saturday at 6 p.m. at Bucky's Sports Bar in Meridian. Admission is free but donations are encouraged.
