The series is a fantastic addition to 5STAR’s growing slate of successful drama acquisitions.”

“Secrets Of Oz” is the 5th visual off of William Cooper’s sophomore album “God’s Will” which has been awarded “Independent Album Of The Year” at The Underground Music Awards and features guest appearances from Rah Digga, Sean Price, Ill Bill, Killah Priest, Sticky Fingaz and more. “God’s Will” is available worldwide on CD and all digital formats. When speaking to William Cooper about the video he said, “This is by far my favorite song/video I have ever released to this point in my career. This is a very heavy song that may have went over many listener’s heads so I am excited to have such an amazing visual to project the song’s brilliance. I hope my die hard supporters will really enjoy this one.”
