(R&B Artist Spotlight/Video) @MACKWILDS - "New York: A Love Story"

It's rare that I spotlight an R&B artist on here, but then again... there hasn't been many from the new generation that have caught my attention. The era I was a fan of, included artists like Mary J., Jodeci, Total, Faith Evans, etc. Amerie was probably the last new R&B artist I really got into. Some of you will recognize Mack from his acting, his most famous role is Michael Lee from The Wire
What caught my attention about Mack's music is, pretty much the beat selection. On his debut album New York: A Love Story, Mack, flips a lot of underground hip hop classics into great new knockin' R&B tunes. Assisted by well known hip hop producer Salaam Remi, they cook up a throwback 90's R&B/NY hip hop gumbo into a very nice debut LP for Mack Wilds. I highly recommend the album, especially for people who are 90's heads like myself.... I promise you won't be dissappointed. 
Check out a quick documentary below where Mack takes you threw his old stomping grounds in Staten Island and talks about the album. Also posted is his latest video off the project entitled "Own It". Follow Mack Wilds on Twitter.

"Nuclear Winter represents many things. It represents dark times in our lives, it represents the state of NY hip hop & how I feel about it, & it represents my blueprint on how I think the music should be done going forward into the future. This is my manifesto to all the people that doubted me & the kryptonite to all selfishness. It's a journey from darkness into light, & from bondage & the huge amounts of weight on our shoulders to breaking free and regaining our freedom. Nuclear Winter we're coming to take shine....." - Willie Maze
