Willie John Rogers
Brother Willie has shown exceptional growth over the past four years with Kingmakers of Oakland. Now a freshman at Merritt College in Oakland, he is repping a 3.1 for his first semester. Merritt College is where the Black Panthers worldwide movement started.
After graduating with the first Oakland TFI Cohort 1; Willie continues to participate fully in the KOO Media Academy (KMA). He makes beats, writes rhymes, and interviewing Kings for the KOO Griots book project.
He also helps activate community events for the youth, like the Open Mic series. He still even finds time to visit TFI Cohort 2 on Saturdays to connect and drop gems as a big Bro for the next crew.
