Mel Carter

dream team of producers and artist features for your debut album, who would make that list?

MC: On the production side I’d say Timbaland, HitBoy, who’s on fire right now! Of course my homie J-Dot, but that’s probably it. I’m not really pressed for features and guest appearances, but of course the big homie Hov would be on there.

EBONY: What can we expect from Mel Carter in the near future?

MC: Hits, hits, and more hits! I’m also working on Popular Stranger 2, which I’m hoping to drop in February. I also don’t wanna jinx it, but we’re working on a tour situation as well.
