A.R.T. Project (Alternate Rap Tunes) is a collaboration between Kahli Abdu and production duo Make/Believe set to release this summer. The group’s debut single “Forever and Ever” premiered recently on OkayAfrica (run by ?uestlove of The Roots), which called the song “an ideal summertime pop lullaby.”
A native of Jos, Nigeria, Kahli Abdu has released several projects showcasing his rapping and singing abilities. Make/Believe consists of David Muehlenkamp and Will Whitney, two producers and members of indie pop band Sweatpants (formerly Basement Batman).
The Brooklyn, NY-based trio describe their collective sound as a sort of “new Fuggees” based on its mixture of hip hop, soul and afro music. “Forever and Ever” draws heavily from the upbeat, guitar-based African music genre Highlife. Enjoy!
