Artist Mini- Bio: Current Oakland emcee (by way of Chicago and Minneapolis), Charity Clay has worked tirelessly honing her craft to insure a quality product is provided to her listeners. Her first release, the 2009 "Forced to Freestyle" was an introduction to her freestyling and storytelling ability as well as a display of her passion and respect for the culture and talent with lyricism. Since then, the rhyme slinger also known as CDot the Catalyst has grown by leaps and bounds as both a writer and artist as she readies the March release of her official debut album "The Smokey Winston Project Redux".

Featured Song (Album Single): Runnin' Man (prod. by Smokey Winston)
Correlating Project: Charity Clay & Smokey Winston- The Smokey Winston Project Redux (March)

Song info: The first single from Charity Clay's impending debut "The Smokey Winston Project Redux" addresses a popular theme in the dynamic of men and women: commitment. The Valentines Day release features a bouncing, clapping soundscape of soul backing CDot as she rhymes in dialogue form to her partner in an attempt to assuage his fears.
