Debut long play from the incomparable Tanika Charles. It’s been quite the grind for Mz. Chawls over the years so I can only imagine how this feels for her right about now. Taking this one in over the long weekend for sure.

Soul Run has been supported by an incredible group of individuals that I’m CERTAIN God has placed in my life at the right time, from time. Off the top, my family, Lennard Charles (Dad), Marva Robley (Mom), Quincy Charles (L’il Bro) and Rudy Mohammed (Big Bro). Thank you for allowing me to at least TRY this music thing. Thank you for loving and supporting me for soooo long. I love you guys immensely. Michael Warren, my partner, for holding me down (I’m so moody and he’s so not). Love you. The Warren Family, Zaki Ibrahim, L’oqenz, Jennifer Balance, Mark El-Raheb, Shandra Fox, Mike Celia, Dave Patel, Tony Nesbitt- Larking, 2nd Son, Marlon James, Nicole Antionette, Michelle Francis, Jesse Ohtake, Tao M Lau, Ryan Paterson, The Big Sound, Slakah the Beatchild, Octavio N. Santos, Taha Muharuma, S-quire Johnson, Emmanuel Jal, Matt Reid, Anthony Corsi, Sproxx, OAC, CAC and CBC. Big thanks to all of you and HUGE heartfelt thanks to all the friends and extended family that had my back from jump. Every dang time I wanted to quit, you insisted that quitting wasn’t an option. Love you like cook food.
