MH The Verb drops off his new album titled “Jupiter Sci-Fi.”
Bay Area-based rapper, producer, DJ, multimedia artist and activist MH The Verb uses a compelling form of Afrofuturism to tell stories and make socio-political commentary. His new album Jupiter Sci-Fi serves as the third full-length 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.
Released via ArtHouse95/Four Finger Distro, the album’s sound is heavily inspired by the way Hip-Hop acts like The Coup used funk to promote their activism, and the abstract compositions of songs from Outkast‘s Stankonia and Q-Tip‘s The Renaissance. Produced by Philly Jazz/Fusion duo Trap Rabbit, the album’s ten tracks blend Jazzy East Coast Boom-Bap with Trap, Electronic and spacey West Coast Funk over live band arrangements.
“During the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to revisit some of my unfinished and unreleased music from the last decade. I set up a studio at my Bay Area retreat and hosted virtual sessions with my Philly-based crew ArtHouse95. We dove deep into my catalog, reworking past compositions and crafting an out of this world 10 song playlist.” – MH The Verb
