In 2020, MH The Verb is intentional about living a better life. The rapper, producer, DJ, and activist seeks to inspire others to follow suit in the music video for his new single “Raw Smoothie“. The video was shot at LaMaison (a community art & living space) in East Oakland, where MH participated in an artist residency in the summer of 2019.
“I left my boring corporate job on the day I wrote this song… That morning when I quit, I left and got a green smoothie with raw vegetables. It was almost like a metaphor for me trying to live better. This whole album was written as an affirmation for me to change habits and become the best version of myself in 2020. ‘Raw Smoothie’ signifies a fresh start, a cleanse, a focus on being a better me.” –MH The Verb
Produced by Buscrates 16-Bit Ensemble, “Raw Smoothie” is from MH’s forthcoming album Space Ninja. Due out February 28 via ArtHouse95/FourFingerDistro, the album will serve as the third installment in the Afronaut saga, a conceptual multimedia series based on a Black sci-fi heroine from the future who travels back in time to inspire the world.
