Producer/rapper Ta’Raach is well known for his work with a who’s who of artists that we know and love, such as Erykah Badu (he produced “Gone Baby, Don’t Be Long”), J Dilla, Jay Electronica, Georgia Anne Muldrow, Coultrain, Blu, Exile and The Pharcyde, to name a select few. But back in 2003 he worked with a little known rapper who decided that he wanted to try singing R&B/soul music on for size. That actually proved to be a good fit, and the rapper adopted the name “Nathaniel” to record his first project completely as a singer.
The result of Nathaniel’s work with Ta’Raach was an EP full of songs about sex and sensual situations. Unfortunately only one 12″ single was released at the time and the complete project never saw the light of day, but Ta’Raach has decided to unlock his vault and release this EP for everyone to hear. Entitled Fellatio, the EP’s title is as risque as some of the songs contained therein, but, adult subject matter aside, it is actually a good album and fine introduction to a singer who has since gone on to stardom.
Once you give a good listen to Nathaniel, you may be able to figure exactly who he is, but our lips are sealed. One thing we’re not keeping quiet about, however, is that we’re proud to world premiere Fellatio right here on SoulBounce. Dig in below and get into grooves such as “La La La,” “Ohh Wahh” and “What I Can” with a guest feature from Blu. Also included on Fellatio are a couple of instrumentals courtesy of Ta’Raach and some cheeky interludes taken from dialogue from Spike Lee‘s Do the Right Thing.
Listen to Fellatio in its entirety below, and check out the NSFW album cover featuring artowrk by The Infamous JeanClaude and a label statement from Love TURL on the next page.
