Rapper MH the Verb and producer Buscrates 16 Bit Ensemble of the multi-media hip hop collective/label ArtHouse95 have teamed up for a compelling brand of ‘Afrofuturism’ on their new collaborative album, Afronaut. Available today on select digital platforms via ArtHouse95/Four Finger Distro, the album serves as the starting component of a conceptual, multi-media project that tells the story of a Black sci-fi heroine from the future sent back in time to uplift and empower our world.
The Afronaut is a conceptual multi-media project based on a Black sci-fi heroine from the future who travels back in time to our complicated present day to inspire and empower the artists and youth of our world. Helmed by rapper MH the Verb and developed by the multi-media hip hop/soul collective known as ArtHouse95, the album features MH’s timely, impassioned lyrics over funky grooves, progressive arrangements, and entrancing beats entirely produced by Buscrates 16 Bit Ensemble. Expanding the project with various contributions from ArtHouse singers and vocalists, the album blends jazz, hip hop, and funk/soul with the organic production values of today’s electronica. Afronaut serves as the full-length follow-up to MH The Verb’s 2014 Balloon Guide album and is his most vibrant and socially important work to date. Learn more here.
