Looks like Mr. Platinum With No Features is continuing to push himself to be more collaborative. Sure, “Middle Child” doesn't include guest appearances from any rappers, but it is produced by T-Minus, who Cole makes a point of shouting out in the intro. After producing the majority of KOD himself, it’s somewhat of a surprise that Cole chose to drop a single produced by someone else. Maybe that photo of him working beside Tay Keith at the Revenge of the Dreamers III sessions wasn’t a fluke, and we’ll hear Cole over more beats from other producers in the months to come. —Eric Skelton
