The Mack is back.
While he has been busy with starring roles on “The Breaks” and “Shots Fired,” NYC native, Mack Wilds, returns with the first single off his forthcoming project Afterhours.
Titled “Explore,” the melodic single is produced by Blak and co-written by Cam Wallace. Wilds goes deep on the short, introspective slow jam as he croons about losing his woman. “She don’t want to hurt no more / She said she wanna go explore / They sayin’ love is a battlefield, I’m lost in the war / Cause she wanna explore,” he sings.
Due April 7, AfterHours is set to feature Wale (“Bonnie & Clyde”), Tink (“Senses”), and Wallace (“Vibes”), plus contributions from DJ Camper, Key Wane, Deputy, The Mekanics, D’Mile, and Kevin Garrett.
The singer/actor announced the project with a short trailer, which hints towards a forthcoming visual. IMDB lists “AfterHours” as an upcoming “television series” featuring Mack along with Julito McCullum, a fellow “Wire” alum. The series only has one episode, titled “Obsession,” which is also the title of a song off AfterHours. Its air date is set for April 10.
Aside from AfterHours, Tristan “Mack” Wilds is staying busy as an actor on the hip-hop-inspired VH1 series, “The Breaks,” which also stars Wood Harris and Method Man. Wilds also appears on FOX’s new crime drama “Shots Fired” along with Sanaa Lathan and Helen Hunt.
