Latest Album: Rapsode

Releasing May 15 2023, Rapsode explores major topics in technology, culture, and industry, from artificial intelligence to genetics to energy innovation, fourteen tracks of original hip-hop music that charts the impact of a changing world on our shared human experience. This album (like several of Baba’s previous projects) also represents a new business model for the music industry, where artists get paid to write about specific topics, producing original work on commission while retaining full ownership and freedom to distribute and sell the work after it’s made.
