Premiere: Georgia Anne Muldrow
Stands Tall in New Video, ‘Arkansas’

Georgia Anne Muldrow joins us to debut her newest music video for the single “Arkansas” off 2015’s A Thoughtiverse Unmarred. The LP, Muldrow’s thirteenth, is the first album to hear the singer/songwriter/producer as a hip hop lyricist from front to back. Muldrow worked with fellow producer Chris Keys for the 12-track project, highlighted by the empowering “Great Blacks” and verbally defiant “Arkansas.” The Jay Brown-directed video of the latter sees monochrome flashes of Muldrow as she speaks to inner-struggles and outward battles on the path to actualization. “I remember crusin’ down to Arkansas / hearing stories that explain exactly why I spar this hard / black militia rapper a full-time job,” flows Muldrow atop a double-kick and soulful melodies with a touch of funk.

Muldrow’s musical lineage and decades-spanning career means there’s no chance of stumbling on shallow thoughts or played-out progressions. Daughter to acclaimed jazz guitarist Ronald Muldrow and singer Rickie Byars-Beckwith, Georgia Anne boasts deep credentials of her own having worked with the likes of Erykah Badu, Robert Glasper, Yasiin Bey (Mos Def), Bilal, Wajeed, and Sa-Ra. Watch Muldrow hold her ground in “Arkansas” below, then grab A Thoughtiverse Unmarred, which is out now via Mello Music Group.
