Although he was born in St. Louis, Aliaune Thiam, Akon grew up in Senegal before he and his family (including his father, jazz percussionist Mor Thiam) returned to the United States and settled in New Jersey when he was seven. There he discovered hip-hop for the first time. Akon began writing and recording tracks in a home studio. The tapes found their way to SRC/Universal, which eventually ...

Format: Audio CD
1st of all i can and do listen to every single akon song, and about akon tryin 2 hard 2 b gangsta??!! where does that come from, akon isnt tryin 2 b gangsta, if he were tryin 2 b gangsta he'd b a rapper, but i love the stories that akon tells us throu his music and 1 of the other reviews said hes 2 damn original?? ok i didnt kno it was a bad thing 2 b original but hey my bad! Bottom line is akon is a trully talented artist, i mean who can say he doesnt hav a great voice? who can say he doesnt make great tracks? well, wot more is it that u expect, would you like him 2 dance for u, somethin like justin timberlake perhaps?! cmon people ok mayb u wont like every single song like i do but theres no way that u can say akon isnt a great singer/producer and thats all we can expect from him, other singers i like would b neyo, chris brown, omarion, they hav a cuple of gd songs but im afraid this is y akon is king bcos he has loads of great songs, ive only eva found 1 person who doesnt like akon and he is an idiot so that says it all, if u like usher buy usher, if u like neyo buy neyo, if u like justin timberlake(god knows why tho) thn buy justin timberlake but if u like trully great music then buy akon, simple!

Ignore the other reviews, i listen to this album nearly every day, there are a lot of the songs that are really catchy, songs like SHAKE DOWN, TIRED OF RUNNING and GRINGO are just three of 13 that stand out, i listen to mine on my mp3. If you liked his first album which i have also then you`ll love this one, if you decide to buy this you wont`t regret it.

An excellent album with lyrics that may shock your Mum! Excellent party music, but definitely not one for the prudes or if there are children in the House. My favourite track is track 4! ...Love it!

A follow-up that shows "konviction" 14 Nov. 2006
By Amanda Richards - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
This second album from Akon is a genre-bending collection of R&B and Hip Hop tracks and lots of ballads. Singing with passion and "konviction", he returns with that unmistakable accent and international musical flavor that propelled his debut album to multi-platinum status.

The first single "Smack That" is an infectiously catchy dance track, and having a re-energized Eminem as a guest artiste won't hurt it's chances at all. The second single "I Wanna Love You" (or the version with the more explicit title) features Snoop Dogg, where Snoop is ready for a little action, and Akon is looking for a relationship, just like his pal T-Pain.

However, if R&B ballads are more your thing, there are some excellent ones on this album, such as "The Rain", "Never Took the Time" (one of the best tracks on the album), the reggae-beat "Mama Africa", "I Can't Wait", and the retro-soul track "Tired of Runnin'"

For mid-tempo fans there's the down to earth "Gangsta Bop", "Blown Away" (featuring Styles P.) and the bonus track "Gringo". If its dance tracks you're after, you'll also like "Shake Down", but this being a more introspective album there's not much room for dancing.

This album contains explicit lyrics, and the unfortunate thing is that the profanity doesn't complement an otherwise very good album. A good buy for someone who likes R & B ballads and doesn't give a #### about profanity.

An Incredible Talent 21 July 2007
By FL Counselor - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I'm a white male over 50 years old, not exactly in the target market. But this guy speaks to me musically, lyrically, emotionally.

Open your mind and give Konvicted a fair listen. Akon is great!

Good Hip-hop infused R&B record 20 Jan. 2007
By Mave2124 - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
An R&B album with a lot of urban Hip-Hop appeal. If you like Akon's sing-song style, this album is for you. He talks about more than just picking up women, that is just the club bangin' singlesw/ Slim Shady and Snoop. His album goes all over the place (sad to happy and every emotion in between) and seems 'real', not a formula type album. I'd recommend it.

More "Trouble" From a Former Konvict 14 Nov. 2006
By Josephll - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Senegalese-American Akon (Actually born in St. Louis) came from nowhere 2 years ago and scored Multi Platinum with his debut"Trouble" and had many single hits like prison anthem "Locked Up" love song cover "Lonely" and "Ghetto". Eventually Akon appeared on loads of other artists albums and almost became an established artist all of sudden. Akon most significant quality is his versability as a musician. He got a very un-orthodox voice that is easy to notice and he's both a rapper and a singer(perhaps he should stick to singing?) and he came out as a man with a troubled past just like 50 Cent, The Game and others. Akon spent time in prison which many of his songs are also about. Thus, Akon was interesting enough 2 years ago even if he's album "Trouble" was only decent. Now, 2 years later we all got higher expectations of Akon, he's appeared on countless of other albums and even produced songs on his own. So what is the verdict?

"Konvicted" that further deals with his time in prison (Shake Down) and macho thug life (Blown Away, Smack That, Gangsta Bop) and from time to time some love songs also (where Akon is best) but the album seems to pick up where "Trouble" left off. There are no major surprises, Akon do what he can to not dissapear and he gets help from the likes of Master P, Eminem and Snoop Dogg in form of guest appearances. None of the appearances are anyting special though and I'm a little surprised that no female artist is feautured. The Snoop duet "I Wanna Love You" is called "I Wanna F*ck You" on the explicit version and is embarrasing lyrically, although Snoop's lyrics are the same on both versions. "The Rain" seems to deal with how it is to be a celebrity and is ok, however like I said before, Akon shines most on love-ballads without guests where he sings and not raps. "Never Took the Time" is great and defenitely my favorite here. "Tired Of Running" where Akon confesses he's tired of Gangsta Life is also a good slow tempo. "Once in A While" with Kanye West esque speed up hook is also a great song and sounds like "Lonely Part 2". Ditto with "Don't Matter" which is simular. The song "Mama Africa" is quite unique with an African feeling, a song where Akon pay tribute to his African Roots (and other black folks too).

Overall, Akon picks up where his last album left, but it seems like Akon hasn't yet realized where his gift is and which direction he should chose. I really like Akon and I think with the right producers and guidance he could become a top notch artist. The problem is this, Akon should stick to singing and stick to mid-tempo or love-songs. He's a good singer and his very unique voice is always welcomed. It's all those thug-like, Prison themes and party songs that makes this album weaker. I also think that none of the guest-artist improved this album one bit. The good songs are good, but the bad songs are bad here, hence It's a typical 3 star album. If you liked his last album you will get more of the same and probably enjoy it but if you just like me knew the quality that this man and wanted an major improvement you will be a little dissapointed. The album is not bad though.
