BJ The Chicago Kid
After scoring his first bonafide hit as a guest artist with Schoolboy Q's "Studio," BJ The Chicago Kid has been quietly dropping some of the best R&B tracks of the year. After releasing eight tracks as one-offs earlier this year, BJ compiles them all into The M.A.F.E. Project and throws in four new tracks as a bonus. Opening with an acapella take on Justin Timberlake's "Strawberry Bubblegum," the project also includes his and Q's remix of Kanye West's "I Can't Hold My Liquor" and a reworking of James Brown's "King Heroin" entitled "Real Love Never Dies."
