The man behind Kendrick Lamar's "LOVE." and GoldLink's "Crew" is breaking out on his own.

After stringing together two platinum singles with Kendrick Lamar's "LOVE." and GoldLink's "Crew," it's safe to say that Teddy Walton has solidified his standing in the realm of production this year. With Walton quickly becoming a fixture in hip-hop with his impeccable beat-making skills, he's now hoping to catch similar success with his forthcoming project, Mental Health. To kick things off, Walton recruits Dom Kennedy for the project's title track.

Over the jazzy, slow-churning beat, the Get Home Safely star floats effortlessly with his laid-back delivery. "L.A. not for sale, letting off shells/ spit it a capell, Supreme Vans in the mail," he raps, before allowing the beat to segue halfway through the record. 

"Catch me on demand/ these days, I'm my biggest fan," he boasts at the latter end of the track. 

For Walton's Mental Health project, he has also enlisted Lil YachtyNipsey Hussle, Goldlink, Lil B, Juicy J and more. 

Take a listen to "Mental Health" below.
