Cloudy Wingz - "Ballin"
William Michael Clark (born January 26th, 1989), age 27, known professionally as Cloudy Wingz, is a Haitian-American rapper, singer, songwriter, and entrepreneur. Cloudy was born in the slums of Port au Prince, Haiti and adopted into America at 3 years of age after most of his biological family was either murdered or died from natural disasters and natural causes. He first lived in St. Paul, Minnesota and then in the rough city of Indianapolis, Indiana where he grew up.
One things for sure, music has always been a part of Cloudy’s life. His adoption father was into classic rock and country while his adoption mother was more into soft rock and classical music. Both his adoption parents were into concerts, theatrical plays, operas, and orchestras. His adoption mother, Anne B. O’Connor-Clark, who divorced his adoption father due to mental and physical abuse, was a single mother who worked as a department store manager for most of Cloudy’s childhood until eventually going back to college and getting a degree as a Registered Nurse.
As a child and teenager Cloudy was in and out of juvenile detention centers, group homes, therapeutic care centers, military themed boot camps, and psychiatric offices due to his violent outbursts and erratic behavior. In his childhood home, tough love was believed to build a good work ethic, and his mom wasn’t wealthy so clothing and things that weren’t needed were seldom bought after the age of ten. Cloudy started stealing and selling candy out of his locker while attending Fall Creek Valley Middle School in order to get what he wanted. That eventually turned into robbery and selling drugs. Cloudy played a variety of sports growing up. Taekwondo, Golf, Basketball, Baseball, Track, Cross country, Tennis, Swimming, and Soccer to name a few, but Football seemed to stick with him. He played in High school with a chance at a state championship until he got into a fistfight with one of his coaches and was caught smoking and selling marijuana on school grounds. When being expelled from multiple high schools became the norm, Cloudy dropped out in the tenth grade and received his G. E. D. while incarcerated at a program for troubled teens. He initially started taking music seriously around the age of 16, but after getting into some serious legal troubles, music was put on hold. His oldest son, Brayden Maddox Arnold’s birth on January 29th 2008, while Cloudy was serving time in a state penitentiary, changed his outlook on life. Or so he thought.
Wanting to stick around and have the relationship with his son that he didn’t have with his father, Cloudy opened up a clothing store called Leonce once he was released from prison. When the store was shut down a year later, he went back to selling drugs from state-to-state and enforcing for fellow drug dealers and business men, which led him to be arrested on federal weapons charges. The case was later dismissed due to illegal search and seizure. After facing life in a federal penitentiary, Cloudy wanted again to change his ways.
He moved from Indiana to start a new life in New Mexico with a long lost Haitian family member. This time around he was back to making music and doing shows. When unfortunate situations caused him to become homeless and living in his car, he went back to the only thing he knew would change his situation fast, selling drugs. Cloudy was sentenced to two years and six months of probation for an incident that caused him to be charged with one count of murder, three counts of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon causing great bodily harm, and three counts of aggravated assault, after shooting four people who attempted to rob him of his drugs in an Olive Garden parking lot. The murder charge was later dismissed due to lack of evidence and a plea deal was signed.
Cloudy then left the street life for good in order to invest in different business ventures and focus on his music career. Which eventually led him to sign with Tama Industries, whom he is currently signed with.
