Compton-bred, Phoenix-based artist Sir Will readies his newest single, “Weight Up”, and its accompanying music video. The new track is produced by legendary west coast producer Rhythm D, who concocted Eazy-E‘s scathing diss song “Real Compton City G’s,” a response to Dr. Dre‘s “Fuck Wit Dre Day,” in 1993.
Earlier this year, Sir Will dropped the “Moment of Truth” single featuring JudgeDaBoss and produced by Pandora Nightz.
The “Weight Up” single is set for release on Friday, September 16, along with the Toni Renee-directed music video.

Growing up in Compton, California, Sir Will overcame a difficult childhood with his family members selling and abusing drugs and loved ones involved in gang activity. Inspired by Los Angeles icon and local rap hero, DJ Quik, who performed at his neighborhood’s annual block party, a young Sir Will wanted to achieve that same human “superpower” of becoming an influential rap icon who enthralled and motivated audiences around the globe. At just eight years old, a young Sir Will began songwriting, rapping, and entering local talent shows and performances showcasing his original music.
Since 2021, Sir Will has released several hip-hop and R&B singles under his label, Will Do It Entertainment. Working with industry heavyweights like Rhythm D, DJ Battlecat, Drumma Boy, Bobby Keyz from the Loopholes, and LA Reid’s son Antonio Reid Jr., Sir Will has established himself as an emcee known for slick metaphors, great hooks, and a captivating vocal clarity.
