Up-and-coming music producer, composer, and singer Yung Citizen, better known to the campus community as 2012 alumnus Christopher Williams, is working on a new music project titled B.I.B.L.E., an acronym for "Basic Instruction Before Leaving Earth."

Williams' new music will be centered on creating positive, uplifting music for youth, in hopes to provide motivation and encouragement in pursuing their dreams without ever giving up. He believes that positive and inspirational music will play a critical part in the lives of today's youth in their journey to carry on the legacy of their ancestors.

"This project presents real, genuine facts about life, things everyone will be able to relate to," Williams said. "The music is designed to provide basic instruction on how to keep going in life and never let anything stop you from what you're trying to do in life, or deeper still, what is meant for you."

Williams, a Music Business graduate, plans to create a six-song EP (extended play), as well as two music videos during the next month. Earlier this year, he launched a new website, released a four-song EP, and released the single Jango and its accompanying music video.
