Rap artist Maassai from Brooklyn and J Words, a producer hailing from New Jersey, are back in the limelight, announcing their sophomore H31R album. Slated for a November 17 release, their new album, HeadSpace, will come out under the Ninja Tune sub-label, Big Dada. Don’t miss the debut music video for their killer lead single, aptly titled “Backwards.”
Regarding the newly minted visual element for “Backwards,” H31R commented, “Crafting the video for ‘Backwards’ was an enriching journey, and we’re thrilled to finally see our long-held creative vision take form. The video serves as both a nod to artists who inspire us and a fresh, original work of art.”
The director of the video, Mike Weir, chimed in with his excitement, saying, “I was ecstatic when H31R came to me with the proposal for the music video. The opportunity to create something in the same vein as Pharcyde’s iconic ‘Drop’ was tantalizing. I believe we’ve birthed something genuinely captivating, and I can’t wait for audiences to soak it in.”
