Spotlighting the next generation artist.
By Zaida Diaz
If you pay any attention to song credits then you shouldn’t be estranged to theMIND. The talented singer-producer started off as a member of the production collective THEMpeople creating the soundboard behind various Mick Jenkins projects. He soon gained guest spots on The Water[s], Wave[s] and more recently on The Healing Component. You’ve likely heard his dreamy vocals on Chance the Rapper’s Coloring Book, Noname’s Telefone and so much more. Around this time last year he declared himself a promising artist with the release of his debut Summer Camp. Just in case you haven’t familiarized yourself with theMIND, we rounded up a list of some of our favs to get you acquainted.
On his latest single, theMIND teams up with Sun for a track that details the strain that miscommunication puts on a relationship. Also, lets just take a moment to thank Da-P for that funky beat.

You’ll want to get up and dance to this one, promise.
In this melancholic track, theMIND reminds us of the privilege that some people boast over others, while at the same time offering a ray of hope to the dreamers. It takes persistence to rise above your circumstance.
Here, we’re reminded of a young summer love. The track (like a summer fling) is short, simple and pretty.
