Who is Heartless the Monster?
Born Nigel Williams, San Antonio-based rapper, singer, songwriter Heartless the Monster, has been releasing heart-wrenching and infectious lyrics since 2014, captivating listeners with smooth, baritone vocals and lyrics that dissect love and relationships.

The Heartless the Monster brand is all about self-actualization. It's about knowing your truth, learning from your mistakes, and laughing to pass the time.
