He collaborated with many of the Bay Area’s best producers - Ant Banks, Khayree, Michael Mosley, and Rick Rock – and helped define the scene’s identity, particularly with his most successful album, Untouchable (1996), which featured perhaps his best-known song, “Get Right”. His career simmered out quickly, however.
He returned in 1999 after a three-year absence and few listeners seemed to notice. Mall was no longer on a major label and the Bay Area scene was no longer the hotspot it had been a few years earlier. Given his brief moment in the spotlight and his sudden decline, it was perhaps no surprise when Mall changed his style in 2001, incorporating a surprising amount of spirituality on his album Immaculate.
