The Second City -- Part 1, was executive produced by Word Entertainment's Senior Director, A&R, Joseph Prielozny, and features four new songs written or co-written by Malcolm. Guest artists on the record include Taylor Hill, Anderson Michael and Zauntee. The title of the EP and the lyrics have special meaning for Malcolm and provides his most biographaical project to date.
"My Father was a Jamaican immigrant. He was arrested in the United States and deported when I was only 10 years old. I never saw him again," explains Malcolm. "He was born in Montego Bay, Jamaica...also known as The Second City. This is my heritage, however, because of Jesus my story is not like my Father's.
"The Second City is an ode to my past, and also represents the new story of hope and redemption I found in Jesus," continues Malcolm. "The Second City is an illustration for the new life, the new story, and the new eternal Kingdom God invites us into through Jesus. Sinners like you and me can receive forgiveness, hope, and eternal life through the finished work of Jesus on the cross! Welcome to The Second City."
The Second City -- Part 1 launches with the Jamaican themed song "Rodeo feat. Taylor Hill," and segues into the ballad "Not To Us-Good Love feat. Taylor Hill & Anderson Michael." This is followed by the "Watch," and concludes with "Fadeaway feat. Zauntee," as both songs feature Malcolm's classic Hip Hop style. The Second City -- Part 1 is the first of a four-part rollout, with the three other EPs being released each quarter in 2018.
