RCA Records presents Mali Music on today's Mad Mondays! I was able to hang out with this young man and quickly became of fan of his music. The 25 year-old is a cross between Bob Marley, Lauryn Hill, Wyclef Jean and John Legend.

Today, I feature five songs from his CD sampler, with my favorite cut being Heavy Love. The intro is strong and reminds of Total's Can't You See. When I asked him about using that sample for the song, he quickly corrected me and informed me that he and his team created that beat.

Mali is a down to earth young man originally from Savannah, Ga., who hd created a fusion of contemporary R&B and inspirational story telling.

He broke into national mainstream at the 2011 BET Awards as the first inspirational artist to perform on the Music Matters stage. Mali is set to drop Mali Is ... in March of 2014. With his feel-good, thoughtful music and lyrics, the groundbreaking talent says he's concentrating on one central goal: "to change the game," and music is his weapon of choice.
