AI-Controlled Rapper FN Meka's Creator Speaks Out On His Capitol Records-Signed Design

FN Meka – a musical artist who is powered using artificial intelligence – has been causing a stir online after he nabbed a coveted recording deal with Capitol Records. The rapper has amassed over 10M followers on TikTok, and already collaborated with Gunna on its first single, “Florida Water.”

While Meka clearly has an abundance of fans on social media, much of the world has yet to make up its mind as to how they feel about the AI-powered creative.


Name one rapper that has a hibachi Rolls Royce like me 🤔

Back in 2021, co-creator Anthony Martini explained to Music Business Worldwide in an interview that he and his Factory New partner Brandon Le think that traditional A&R is “inefficient and unreliable.”

“We’ve developed a proprietary AI technology that analyzes certain popular songs of a specified genre and generates recommendations for the various elements of song construction: lyrical content, chords, melody, tempo, sounds, etc.,” he explained last year. “We then combine these elements to create the song.”

At the time, Martini noted that “a human voice performs the vocals, but we are working towards the ability to have a computer come up with and perform its own words – and even collaborate with other computers as ‘co-writers.'”
