Grammy-nominated singer, songwriter, MC, activist, philanthropist, and acclaimed Hip Hop artist Maimouna Youssef a.k.a. Mumu Fresh just released a single triad (three) that includes the songs “Bitterness,” “Let’s Eat,” and “Chasing Rainbows” for the latest installment of the Chasing Goosebumps series called The Healing.
The tracks appears on Grammy-Award winning producer DJ Jazzy Jeff’s PLAYLIST Sessions.
“Each song is different and gives you a little hip hop, R&B, and funk…this music is not only meant to be heard but to be enjoyed,” states Mumu. “The topics range from the complexities of being a woman (love, relationships, respect) to the social and civil injustices that plague our community. All these things make up who I am and who I represent as a whole.”
Handpicked by DJ Jazzy Jeff, the project features writers, musicians, and producers that include Grammy-Award winning writer-producer Carvin Haggins, Eric Roberson Kenny Dope, Mac Ayres, Muhsinah, Terry Hunter and more.
Mumu Fresh is currently touring with rapper/actor Common on his “Let Love Tour,” which kicked off August 7th in Toronto and made stops in Detroit, Cleveland, Philadelphia, DC, among others with the last three stops in Charlotte, Dallas (8/28), and Kansas City (8/29).
In addition, Mumu Fresh will take the stage at BET’s Black Girls Rock! Awards taping on August 25 at the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, honoring Angela Bassett, Ciara, Regina King, Debra Martin Chase, H.E.R. and Mothers of The Movement.
