Hitmaking producer Salaam Remi has been holding a secret. While delivering some of the hottest tracks for many of today’s top artists, Remi has been quietly working on a new project for a new artist, who is going by the name, Mack.

In fact, ‘Mack’ is none other than actor/singer Tristian Wilds, who is most known for his roles on TV shows such as The Wire and films like Red Tails.
