WHAT IT IS: This Grammy-nominated soul singer is poised to become one of your favorite hip-hop artists and favorite R&B singer. His critically acclaimed Motown debut In My Mind stitches together street stories of love, threaded by strains of ’60s and ’70s R&B, soul power and hip-hop bravado. Whether it’s the tense boom of “Man Down” featuring Buddy & Constantine, the poignant and passionate delivery of “Shine” and “Heart Crush” or the otherworldly vocal showdown with Kendrick Lamar on “The New Cupid,” the album traverses the emotional spectrum and plumbs the psyche of a true R&B poet.
