As AfroTech previously reported, FN Meka — co-created by Anthony Martini and his partner Brandon Le — became the first artificial intelligence rapper to be signed to Capitol Records. He even released a single titled “Florida Water,” featuring Gunna. However, not everyone was a fan of FN Meka’s persona and questionable lyrics considering the voice behind the robot is a white male.

Meet FN Meka, The Controversial Artificial Intelligence Rapper Signed To Capitol Records Who Already Has A Track With Gunna

FN Meka is making headlines as the first artificial intelligence (AI) rapper to sign with Capitol Records, Music Business Worldwide reports. Under the major label, the AI rapper has a newly released single titled “Florida Water,” featuring Gunna and gaming streamer Clix. According to Ryan Ruden, Capitol Music Group’s Executive Vice President of Experiential Marketing & Business Development, the musical project “meets at the intersection of music, technology, and gaming culture” and “is just a preview of what’s to come.” He added: “This latest project with FN Meka and Clix, while a first of its kind, is only an evolution of Capitol Records’ 80-year history of innovation.” The single “Florida Water” will be available on streaming platforms and Capitol Records has scored “a unique partnership” with music startup, which means other creators will have a chance to use the song on YouTube and Twitch “without monetization or takedowns.”
