On his new album The Third Hand, RJD2 completely reinvents his sound. He's no longer pure hip-hop. He's made a pop record. It was written, arranged, produced and performed entirely by RJD2, born Ramble John "RJ" Krohn. There's not a sample on an album from a man famed for his creative use of layered samples. It's not an end to his producing or even closing the door on hip hop, but RJD2 considers his new album more than dabbling in singing. He's serious about the change.
Songs performed: "Since We Last Spoke," "You Never Had It So Good," and "Have Mercy."
