Obsidian by Moor Mother Ft. Pink Siifu Mp3 Download
American poet, musician, and activist, Camae Ayewa better known by her stage name Moor Mother, has released a single off her upcoming album.
The album titled Black Encyclopedia Of The Air is slated for release on September 17 via her new label home. Recall that Aweya recently signed to ANTI-.
It includes “Zami” as well as the just-released single “Obsidian,” an under-two-minute offering of abstract, psychedelic rap featuring Pink Siifu.
The experimental alter ego of Philly-based musician released the disorienting lead single “Obsidian” today.
“Obsidian”, Aweya says, centers on “thinking about one’s proximity to violence. Thinking about violence in the home. Violence in communities.”
The album was recorded at home in March 2020 at the start of the pandemic, and it also features appearances by Elucid, Antonia Gabriela, Brother May, Lojii, Bfly, Nappy Nina, Maassai, Antonia Gabriela, Orion Sun, Yatta, Black Quantum Futurism, Elaine Mitchner, and Dudu Kouate.
Camae Ayewa is also one half of the collective Black Quantum Futurism, along with Rasheedah Phillips, and co-leads the group Irreversible Entanglements.
