Mach-Hommy Announces New Album & Drops KAYTRANADA-Produced Single With 03 Greedo

New Jersey rapper Mach-Hommy is releasing a new album entitled #RICHAXXHAITIAN — the official follow-up to 2021’s Pray for Haiti and Balens Cho, and the last installment of a tetralogy focused on his native country of Haiti.

To set things off, Mach tapped 03 Greedo for the hook and fellow Haitian KAYTRANADA for the production of the album’s title track and lead single. “RICHAXXHAITIAN” features Mach spitting in a rapid-fire flow and Greedo crooning like a West Coast Max B over a bouncy beat that interpolates Afrobeats legend Odion Iruoje’s “Ikebe.”

#RICHAXXHAITIAN will arrive May 17, just before Haitian Flag Day. The Haitian flag dates back to May 18, 1803, when it was created during the Haitian Revolution. The country gained its independence from the French a year later, making it the first free Black republic in the world, the first independent state in the Caribbean, and the second oldest independent nation in the Western Hemisphere after the United States.

This new effort from Mach will examine “the country’s rich history as the world’s first free Black republic” and imagine “the nation’s possible future as an exemplar of Black cultural and economic excellence,” according to a press release. At the moment, Haiti is dealing with intense political strife as the country’s Prime Minister Ariel Henry recently resigned.

With this album, Mach wants to focus on Haiti’s greatness and fight the public’s negative connotation associated with his homeland. Not all of Mach-Hommy’s music is available for streaming, so it’s always a big deal when he drops something through official channels.

#RICHAXXHAITIAN will feature production from Conductor Williams, KAYTRANADA, Quelle Chris and Sadhu Gold, among others, and will feature Black Thought, Roc Marciano, 03 Greedo, HEPHZIBAH, Drea D’Nur, Your Old Droog, Tha God Fahim and Big Cheeko.

You can stream the new single here, and be on the lookout May 17 when the album drops.
