The all-around, musician, producer, engineer, and artist, Childish Major is back with a new project, Thank You, God. For It All. This latest project has him reuniting with long-time collaborator and friend, mixtape legend, Don Cannon as executive producer. The EP consists of 18 minutes of top-down convertible classic hip-hop meets modern trap production with featured verses from TDE's ScHoolboy Q Atlanta's-own, Yung Baby Tate.
Carolina-bred Swiss army knife, Major, just celebrated his 30th birthday on the fourth of July. As the fireworks across the country rang off, the artist already had plans in motion to begin rolling out music that he's been refining his mini-project during the wake of the global pandemic and national political and social unrest.
Just two days after Major's birthday, he released the EP's standout single, "F Yah Job". Major describes the summer as a Friday afternoon when you "clocked out, like don't call me." The summer vibe single has already surpassed 460,000 streams on Spotify and 195,000 views on Youtube.
According to Major, Cannon sparked many of the ideas for the project to get the ball rolling. "As the relationship grows, I'm super appreciative of for one who he (Cannon) is as a person, but also who he is as a lover of music.", shares Major." (He's) somebody who has a platform and uses his platform to put things that he believes will push the culture forward.”
He and his engineer went up and recorded music in North Carolina with J.Cole, who himself was preparing to have an unavoidable presence this summer. Cole shared material from The Off-Season and also some other unreleased music with them while they were in studio. They completed the songs in North Carolina and came back and began putting the finishing touches on it.
On the tail-end of the EP comes the single "Disrespectful" with a verse from hip-hop heavy-hitter ScHoolboy Q. With knocking kicks and eerie background whispers in the production, the two artists demolish the beat with catchy flows and merciless rhyme schemes. ScHoolboy Q and Childish Major only just recently met through one of Q's former clique members, Black Hippy. Happy rapped on a remix of Major's breakout song "UOENO" back in 2013.
Thank You, God. For It All is also backed by a 3-part video documentary directed by media journalist Yoh, and features Don Cannon, J. Cole, Buddy, and many others. In the series, fans are privy to behind-the-scenes in-studio shots, showing conversations with Cannon and many others.
Major says he will also be looking to tour right away and will share more details on that soon. Thank You, God. For It All is available to purchase or listen to on all streaming DSPs right now.
