Shortie No Mass, 'Sunday in October'

As we near the year's end, #NowPlaying recommends songs that slipped through the cracks, but remain in our headphones.

After making her debut in 1993 with The Roots and as a guest on De La Soul's Buhloone Mindstate, Teressa Thomspon (aka Shortie No Mass) inexplicably disappeared from the music business. Inspired by a viral explosion of her lone solo single "Like This/U Like My Style," Thompson is back. Produced by Evil Dee of Da Beatminerz, "Sunday in October" is built around a breezy, boom-bap instrumental. A melancholy vocal sample, Rhodes piano, and neck-snapping drum beat set the tone for Thompson to reintroduce herself to the world.
