After a string of singles and a handful of collaborations, Careless Music's Massiah has finally released his first album, LAHI. The word "Lahi," when translated from Tagalog to English, is a noun and means "race." When translated from Bisaya to English, it's seen as an adjective and means "different."

LAHI is the story of the islands. It’s a spirited, sonic expression depicting the ebb and flow of trying to make it in life and finding enjoyment in it as you do so. A testament to the tropics, it imbues island-instrumental influences to most of the hip-hop, rap, and RNB tracks in it while mixing Afrobeat, neo-soul, and electronic elements. It tells tales inspired by Massiah’s own adventures around the country—tales of love, exciting journeys, and bittersweet moments.

LAHI includes some collaborations and of course some new tracks alongside some of his recent releases like Stay With Me, Higher, and Paid For It. The 9 track album features BecauseFernCavillJames Reid, and August Wahh. LAHI is an escape from the big crowds and the noise and the city. It's a reminder of the island life.
