Originally written in response to the election of Donald Trump, rapper MH the Verb uses lyrics to reflect on the anger and pain of people marginalized in America on ‘Afronaut‘ album standout “Yo America.” The song’s video treatment can be given a watch below.
A continuation of the “Traffic” music video, “Yo America” follows the character of the ‘Afronaut’ as she explores a deserted warehouse full of books and learns more about our world, tracing Black History through a futuristic lens, while offering hope in the face of despair.
Available now on all digital platforms via ArtHouse95/Four Finger Distro, the ‘Afronaut’ LP 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, inspire, and empower our world.
