WHO IS AKS?
There’s no denying there’s been a real sense of palpable excitement around British born Hip-Hop artist/producer, AKS (pronounced Ay-Kay-Ess).
Heralded as one of the most revered British lyricists by publications such as Hypetrak, Okayplayer, SoulCulture, and co-signed by Roc Nation/Jamla’s Young Guru; the South Londoner’s 2016 sophomore EP, (second project in his three-part Modes of Transport series) – Train of Thought saw the rapper lauded with praise; and earned him two nominations at the inaugural Unsigned Music Awards 2016 (Best Urban Act & Best Album/EP/Record).
Fast forward to 2021 and the “three-letter man” whet appetites for the closing instalment of his trilogy with the motivational single ‘Up & Up (Heavens Above)’, earning the rapper further support from the likes of Capital XTRA’s DJ Semtex (#SemtexSelects), Ellie Prohan (KISS FM) and Hip-Hop legend Chuck D (Public Enemy), asserting the rapper as one of the most promising acts in the UK’s fast rising urban scene.
His heartfelt follow up single, Parity, exploring themes of black fatherhood, found favour with prominent DJs like Sian Anderson, Tiffany Calver, & Gemma Bradley earning the rapper BBC Music Introducing ‘Track of the Week‘ at BBC Radio 1xtra and further support from BBC Radio 1 and Converse.
With a new project, “As Plane as Day: Departures & Arrivals”, in the proverbial wings and the promise of further singles spilling out over the next few months; it’s clear that this is one journey that isn’t set to end any time soon for the rap prodigy and the world is definitely within reach for this undeniable talent.
