Hip-hop pays a lot more attention to its matriarchs than maybe any other genre. Big K.R.I.T. can tell you within every song of his that his grandmother made much of an impression on him, even referring to the belief that she pulled some strings in Heaven to get the Mississippi born emcee to where he is now. The same can be said for Cam Wallace who without hesitation completely tagged up “Thelma’s Song” with his usual etchings of swag and feel good notions.

“Thelma’s Song” works as a love letter to his grandmother, with doting reminders of the dress code for success and the influence she had on Cam to be one of Houston’s most underrated producers and blossoming rappers. As long as she’s in his heart, The Kitchen could wind up being the gourmet dish of the summer, if that’s when Cam plans on letting us have it.
