This is superb - and Im not even a 'rap' fan,
This review is from: It's Not A Rumour (Audio CD)
I'd never heard of Akala until very recently when I popped along to see him at a gig in Notting Hill.
All I can say is that it was simply, mindblowing. This is not the conventional 'rap' that you are used to, in fact I don't think his music can even be labelled. I like to think of it as urban poetry, pure and simple. Akala's lyrics are meaningful, soulful, and at times..so real, downright alarming.
Proof that carrying a gun and wearing £200k worth of jewels doesn't make you a good musician.
Be sure of one thing, this guy will get inside you, keep you listening and coming back for more. Pure excellence.
