Still working on that hot first release.



As an artist and individual, Richard (A.K.) Simpson personifies the name of the label - R.A.R.E.! With his smooth, perfectly delivered delivery and powerfully impacting true-to-life lyrics, A.K. brings a sound to the scene that is seldom heard and almost absent from the rap game. Hence, R.A.R.E. Muzik.

So yes. It is finally here people! The once a decade gift from the "rap gods" has arrived. Our answer as to who is going to be the next chosen one to help carry us to and through 2020 has been unveiled. How one artist is able to spit one verse and remind us all of greats passed and living alike is beyond human perception. Truly a god send.

It is easy to hear that A.K. is influenced by artists that deliver the same truth such as Tupac, Biggie, Scarface, Jay Z, Big Pun, UGK, Rakim, KRS One, X Clan... you get the picture.

Starting out in the first rap group consisting of the first rappers to come out of Pasadena, TX they formed Mixed Colored Mafia. A mixed mafia they were. Three African Americans, two Hispanics, and one Caucasian artist. Between time and prison MCM dissolved and A.K. began pursuing a solo career as an artist and co-owner at R.A.R.E. Muzik. Since, A.K. has done features for both Aggravated camps and The Most Hated. Recorded songs with Lil Bing, South Park Mexican, Klondike Kat, K Rino, Ike Man, Lil Villain, Sen, Rebel, Lone The Poet, Get n Live Records, OG Big C, and Lord Loco. Just to name a few. Being diverse as he his he has also been able to go from performing at The Los Magnificos car show, to doing sets with the Deafening (Houston), Tuff Roots (Sioux Falls), BlackVan Burnouts (Sioux Falls), to jumping on stage in Houston at Toc bar Downtown. His resume also includes radio play and interviews on KTSU 90.0 in Houston, WHPK 88.5 in Chicago, street933.com and Latin Television.

With his debut album R.A.R.E.volution - You're Invitation collecting accelerating all-to-the-good feedback, performances are in demand. A.K. has a stage presence that demands your attention and forces you to respond. Resulting in the inclination to purchase an album you will not regret. With hit tracks like G.A.N.G.S.T.A.S. and Never Know has the public and program directors definitely wanting to hear more.

This is only the beginning folks. His connection to the community includes events that he has created such as Know Your Neighborhood Day. An event that encourages  neighbors, especially those with kids, to be open to getting to know the family's behind the kids that our kids play with. Its heartfelt moves like this that show just how R.A.R.E. A.K. is.
