There was a time when Mint Condition was racking up hits and dominating radio, but after more than two decades as the lead vocalist for the R&B band, Stokley Williams has decided to step out as a solo artist. He has just dropped his debut solo album Introducing Stokley.
Stokley called in a few friends for the project, such as Grammy winning jazz pianist Robert Glasper and London-based singing diva Estelle. The album’s groove laden lead single “Level.”It’s not that Stokley hasn’t performed outside of Mint Condition. He has much success outside of the group. In 2011, he was featured on Kelly Price’s hit “Not My Daddy,” which earned him his first Grammy nomination for Best R&B Performance. Still, Stokley says there is much more for fans to discover on Introducing Stokley. Interview inside.

Brittany and Charmaine Goodwin are twin sisters digitally influencing us with a fresh take on fashion, beauty and pop culture. I was introduced to the duo earlier this year, when I was surfing through photos from Tyler the Creator’s fashion show in Los Angeles. Their creative style caught my eye so I did my research and found their YouTube channel. I admired their eclectic style and passion to spread knowledge about African American history. I reached out to the girls and the rest is history. Enjoy my interview with them and get to know what the Complex Girls are all about!
