“I grew up with good people, even though I grew up in the ‘hood. I would have loved to see Omar if he had a chance to finish school and had a good mom and dad in his life. Maybe if he lived in a different part of Baltimore, he would probably become a very influential person in society, ‘cause he has a beautiful mind and good heart.”

Michael K. Williams made a mix for Omar, his character from “The Wire”

wbezmusic:

In order to get into the zone, Williams makes playlists that match the personalities of the characters he plays. Makes sense that his Omar playlist would include a lot of Lauryn Hill, Biggie Smalls and 2pac:

  • 2pac, “Unconditional Love”
  • Nas, “Let There be Light”
  • Young Jeezy, “Dreamin’”
  • Mary J. Blige, “My Life”
  • Lauryn Hill, “Oh Jerusalem”
  • Jay-Z, “You Must Love Me”
  • 2pac, “So Many Tears”
  • Biggie Smalls “Suicidal Thoughts”
  • Young Jeezy “Bury me a G”
  • Jay-Z, “Oh My God”
  • Biggie Smalls, “Who Shot Ya”
  • 2pac, “Against All Odds”
  • Biggie Smalls, “Everyday Struggle”
  • Nas, “One Mic”
  • Lauryn Hill, “War in the Mind”
  • Common, “It’s Your World”
  • Lauryn Hill, “Mystery of Iniquity”
  • Meshell Ndegeocello, “Akel Dama (Field of Blood)”
  • Lauryn Hill, “I Gotta Find Peace of Mind”
  • 2pac, “Dear Mama”
  • Sun Tan “Sunscreen”

And in case you missed it, here’s our interview with Williams from last year.

Michael K. Williams, AKA Omar Little from The Wire, AKA the greatest scripted series ever produced, speaks out in support of Maryland’s same-sex marriage bill on behalf of Marylanders For Marriage Equality.

“Gay and lesbian couples have the same values, like commitment and family. They want to build strong families through marriage.” Oh, indeed.

“If I could say I have something in common with Chalky it would be his flair for style. There’s a lot that goes on behind fashion, whereas style and swagger come not from what’s in vogue or in season, but what’s in my season.”

Lunch With Omar In Our Cafeteria
He sure turned heads, too. The Wire’s (and Boardwalk Empire’s and Community’s) Michael Kenneth Williams grabbed a quick meal with GQ’s Mark Anthony Green to talk about being funny, getting a shoutout from Obama and keeping that scar. Click here for the full read. A small sample below:

GQ: After working on The Wire for two seasons, you were  evicted from your apartment. What happened? Michael Kenneth Williams: When I booked The Wire, I was  in a very dark place.  I was searching for a way out, period. And I  didn’t know what my next move was going to be. I had left the [acting]  business, and I was working at my mother’s daycare in Flatbush. It was a  point where I didn’t care about much and that was my state of mind when  I went in to read for Omar. When I got the part, it took the focus off  myself and my personal problems. With that came a lot of irresponsible  behavior, especially financially speaking. I had a lot of time on my  hands and wasn’t working as much in the second season, so I started  getting into some reckless behavior. Lots of partying and a little too  much spending money and at the end of season two, I had to put my shit  in storage and move out. But one thing I didn’t do was give up my  apartment in Brooklyn, so at the end of season two all my shit was in  storage in Baltimore and I was sleeping on a mattress on the floor in  the projects of Brooklyn. And that hurt.
GQ: You were 25, right when the incident… The fight.
GQ: Yes, the fight, that left you with that infamous scar. Did you  have plastic surgery? Yes I did. But not to remove it, just  so I wouldn’t keloid.
GQ: So could they have removed the scar permanently? I never asked that question, really.  When it first happened, I had to maneuver some things to be eligible for  a plastic surgeon. I didn’t have health insurance at the time. So he  just stitched me up. That was my main concern.
GQ: If you could have it removed today, would you?  No.
