Flashback Friday: Kwamé, Algebra Blessett and Method Man


Last Friday, in honor of the latest season of TVOne’s Unsung series, we looked back at a couple of recently featured artists.

Why not keep the love going?

The most recent episode featured rapper Kwamé, whose most important contribution to the game wasn’t his polka dots or high-top fade, but his extensive resume as a music producer. He’s worked with everyone from Will Smith to Mary J. Blige and has sold more than 30 million records. Here are a couple of albums that greatly benefited from Kwamé’s ear.


Algebra Blessett, Purpose (2008)

I instantly fell in love with Algebra after hearing her single “Run & Hide.” Kwamé worked his magic on several other tracks too, helping Algebra deliver a stunning debut album.

“Can I Keep U”


Method Man, 4:21…The Day After (2006)

Kwamé helped Mr. Meth diversify his sound on his fourth album. Many of the songs were a slight departure from Meth’s trademark gritty soundscapes yet still managed to stay grounded. Kwamé was behind the boards for many of the album’s most underrated tracks.
