Before crafting what would eventually become 2017’s stellar Afronaut project, rapper MH THE VERB and producer Buscrates 16 Bit Ensemble first recorded ‘Bx:2 Lighter.’ The song served as the intro track to MH’s ‘The Balloon Guide’ LP, available now on all streaming/download sites.
‘The Balloon Guide LP’ serves as the soundtrack to MH’s subway ride from The Bronx to Brooklyn. ‘Bx:2 Lighter’ documents the beginning of his trip with the goal of retrieving his lighter from a girl he left it with the night before. Shot by J Pinder and directed by MH while touring the West Coast, the song’s music video is a re-introduction to an album that arguably marked some of MH’s most artistically formative years.
