In 1991, he starred in the favorable film New Jack City, alongside Wesley Snipes, Allen Payne, Mario Van Peebles, and Ice-T. In the following year, Williams released his second studio album entitled Changes.
In 2001, the singer/actor released his last album Real Men Do independently and continued to tour.
In recent years, Williams shared with fans that he has retired, however, he never clarified that he was retiring from the music, the acting industry, or the overall entertainment industry.
In 2013, he appeared on an episode of The Real Housewives of Atlanta which caused controversy, when it appeared that he and singer/songwriter Kandi Burruss got into a physical altercation. Dispelling the rumors in an interview, Burruss confirmed that the two singers didn’t get physical.
While featured on TV One’s Unsung, Williams got candid about his past relationship with Halle Berry, and Stacey Dash, with whom he shares a son named Austin. Additionally, recalled the time he destroyed an Uptown Records office due to the lack of support of his album.
