Listen to Yugen Blakrok's 'Anima Mysterium' album.
You must have been living under a rock if you haven't been seeing the promo leading towards Yugen Blakrok's sophomore album, Anima Mysterium.
Right after announcing a deal with I.O.T Records, the South African rapper released two singles, "Carbon Form" and "Picture Box," that were both accompanied by stunning music videos.
The road leading to Anima Mysterium hasn't been a quiet one. What with the overwhelming media coverage Yugen received after her impressive verse on the Black Panther soundtrack last year.

Yugen has more people watching her now than she did when she released her debut album Return of the Astro-Goth in 2013. But listening to the new album, it's evident she didn't allow any of that pressure (if any) to dictate what music she made.
Anima Mysterium may be more dynamic than Return of the Astro-Goth sonically, and has more guests per song than her debut, but Yugen is still being herself. Guest features on Anima Mysterium include Historian Himself, Jak Tripper, Bravestarr, Fifi The RaiBlaster and Zetina Mosia.
