J.Rawls & Middle Child "Thankful"
Producer J Rawls–responsible for work with Mos Def, Masta Ace, Talib Kewli, and other hip-hop greats–teamed up with vocalist Middle for this collaborative album simply titled Rawls & Middle. The two apparently met by random chance when Rawls needed a vocalist, and after that brief project, they decided to make a full album together. The result is a release that explores a variety of musical styles, from future-jazz to Latin to downtempo, while Middle Child's voice soars over the never-ending supply of catchy hooks and basslines.
