Mach-Hommy has shared his new album Pray for Haiti, which was executive produced by Westside Gunn.
The Griselda rapper also makes several vocal contributions to the effort, along with other featured guests Keisha Plum, The God Fahim, Melanie Charles and more.
“I had a lot of fun making Pray For Haiti. We traveled some and made some great memories along the way. But there’s another reason beyond the music why this album is special,” he said. “For too many years, I’ve had countless heartfelt conversations with esteemed members of the Haitian Diaspora and the best way to get charitable donations directly to the people.”
“Far too many of us can recall the millions of telethon dollars ‘pledged’ and, according to all major media outlets, not actually ‘donated’ to those in need,” he continued. “Especially after the 2010 earthquake, I for one feel a bit robbed of momentum when petty non-profit hustlers use the plight of Haitian people as cannon fodder for Western media feeds and tickers.”
In a bid to directly support Haitian students and residents, Mach-Hommy revealed that 20 percent of his album’s proceeds will go toward the Pray for Haiti Trust Fund. The fund works to improve schools in Port-au-Prince and promote software engineering and coding programs nationwide.
Pray for Haiti also marks Mach-Hommy’s second project of the year, following his Bulletproof Luh EP. Stream the new album below:
