Omar (aka Michael K. Williams) was a guest on The Opie and Anthony Show this morning to promote his role in Spike Lee's Miracle at St. Anna
. It was Michael's first time on the show, so there was little in the way of movie talk and lots of The Wire
. Toward the end of the gab session he pulled out a CD of his side project.. "Omar is Coming."
In 2002, Jam Master Jay (of Run DMC) suggested that he record an Omar rap album. Michael spoke to Jay the day before he was killed; the album has been on the shelf ever since. Michael said he was in Chicago when he heard "Sumthin's Gotta Give"
and decided to trade Big Boi's verses with his own. That's how you get.. more..
