Bryan James Sledge, better known as BJ The Chicago Kid to the hip-hop and R&B world, is definitely a rising star that the entire world has yet to see.  He dropped his first album, Pineapple Now-Or-Laters, back in early 2012.  This album is nothing short of amazing, which features only two collaborations.  The 17 track album has a very 90’s feel to it while BJ’s beautiful voice can be compared to the sounds of D’Angelo and Raheem Davaughn.  But truly one of a kind in his own right.


Kendrick Lamar Receives The Key To Compton


BJ’s new album In My Mind, is currently out and features the likes of Kendrick Lamar, Chance The Rapper, Buddy & Constantine, Isabella, K.R.I.T. and Isa.  As NPR.org puts it, “In My Mind is a soul record, though not “soul” in the throwback sense we’ve come to expect.  Informed by decades of influence, it is inspired by tradition, not mired in it.  BJ’s brand of rhythm and blues is an amalgam of the history of black music: Gospel, blues, pop and jazz and, of course, hip-hop are all represented.  Thematically, he covers familiar territory with songs about love, sensuality and infidelity, yet his approach is all his own.  BJ juxtaposes the sacred and profane to illustrate a timeless tug of war–between faith and higher ideals on one side, and carnal needs and worldly pleasures on the other.”

Collaborating with Kendrick Lamar is always a good look and the song The New Cupid is dope.  Check out “The New Cupid” by BJ The Chicago Kid featuring Kendrick Lamar single below:


BJ took to Instagram to thank those that helped and starred in the video.  He stated: “With the help of my friends… @HannibalBuress @Ralphael_Saadiq @KendrickLamar @MilaJ & @IamSu we bring you “The New Cupid” video from my album #IMM.
