“MARY’S WORLD” is from my latest album Jupiter Sci-fi, which is rooted in Afrofuturism & social activism. It serves as the latest installment in the Afronaut saga, a conceptual multimedia series based on Black futurism and radical joy.
The song was originally recorded in 2013 as a gift for a friend's birthday. The lyrics positively portray the story of a woman coming into her own power and experiencing extreme joy with a group of friends celebrating her birthday. It was heavily inspired influenced by the alternative Hip Hop artists like Kid Cudi and abstract hip hop classics like Outkast's Stankonia and Q-Tip's The Renaissance while still translating a new and unique sound.
The “MARY’S WORLD” video is a selection from a 5 part series of music visuals shot on location at Skyranch Cannabis, an organic cannabis farm in the Santa Cruz Mountains. I wrote the treatments for the project while staying in a cabin on the farm during the pandemic. The project was shot in August 2021 with a 15 production crew of POC creatives from the Bay Area community. The video features positive depictions of people of color enjoying nature and celebrating life and love.
