James Fauntleroy has been working as a songwriter behind the scenes for some time, but in the last year or so we've really seen him come into the foreground of the music industry. Appearing on Drake's "Girls Love Beyonce", J. Cole's "Born Sinner", and Big Sean's "World Ablaze", Fauntleroy has put in work with some of the biggest names in rap, but it hasn't slowed his solo material either.

To celebrate his birthday, James has dropped the String Theory Acoustic EP, which, if you've been following the singer's output, contains a few songs you may already recognize.

The 7-track project can be streamed in its entirety below. It can be purchased at blackmario.com.
