Malachiae Warren is a singer and songwriter from Atlanta, Georgia whose rise was supported by Jasper Cameron, a producer who has worked with the likes of Lloyd, August Alsina, Ciara, and Tinashe.
As a teenager, Warren built a following through YouTube, where he uploaded covers of contemporary hits -- including Chris Brown's "Don't Judge Me," Future's "Neva End," and Miguel's "How Many Drinks?" -- as well as proper videos for original songs like "Off My Mind" and "4 Reasons." In 2015, he released an EP, The Rideout, as a free download, and signed to Motown a few months later. That August, a version of the EP's "Thank Yo Momma," featuring Migos, was issued as his debut for the label. Motown released Warren's Heard U Was in My City, a six-track EP, the following March. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
