Planet Asia has announced his next album, Mansa Musa, is expected to arrive on May 25. The project serves as his follow-up to his latest solo album The Golden Buddha, which dropped in January.
Ahead of its release, the tenured MC and former Cali Agent has shared the LP’s inaugural single “Mansa Musa Medallions” featuring Hus Kingpin and SmooVth. All three MCs swap verses and name check Mansa Musa, a 14th century African ruler who has been referred to as the richest man ever.
n 2017, the Fresno native also dropped two collaborative albums with producers DirtyDiggs (Dirty Planet) and Apollo Brown (Anchovies). Since releasing his self-titled EP in 1998, he’s spit out an arsenal of material and consistently performs all over the world.
In addition to The Winners Family members Hus Kingpin and SmooVth, Mansa Musa also includes guest spots from Tristate, Montage One and Phil The Agony.
