Zacari's TDE debut is a promising sign of things to come.

TDE's newest signee Zacari has been assisting the camp for a minute, contributing to tracks like Ab-Soul's "RAW" and Kendrick Lamar's "LOVE." Now, the wolf aficionado has come through to wave his TDE banner, dropping off his debut Run Wild Run Free EP. The seven-track project offers up no shortage of melodic vibes, opening up with the tender motivations of "You Can Do Anything." Lead single "Midas Touch" finds the singer operating in a hazier territory, displaying a welcome ear for versatility. 

Fans of his contributions to "LOVE" will find much to enjoy here, as Zacari occasionally implements an eighties-influence into his music. Washed out synth pads often provide the backdrop for his melancholic and wistful musings. While it would have been nice to see a few TDE contributors holding it down with the assist, Zacari proves he can carry a load by his lonesome; in fact, Lil Yachty is the project's sole feature, the rare union between Quality Control and Top Dawg Entertainment. What do you think about Zacari's debut?
