“Every rapper should aim to be an emcee,” the Columbus, Ga lyricist expresses immediately. The Akapella is a true word professional. He’s worked to be good at what he does. At 14, he won his first talent show and knew that rap was his ultimate future.

“I used to cipher and freestyle with my homeboys. Eventually I started harnessing my skills, getting a little more creative, and working at it. Nine years later, I’m finally doing a little something,” Akapella continues.

Inspired by Kansas City artist Tech 9ine, Lagrange, Ga rapper Haystack, and last month’s Perfect Attendance winners Clan Destined, Akapella draws creativity from their stories and music; along with a popular Tupac track. “Tupac’s “Hail Mary” makes me wanna go so hard. That song definitely set it off for me and my interest in rap.” Since then, he’s been ready to take off.

With his wordplay and talent as a freestyler, he took on the name the Akapella after realizing his ability to spit bars with no music. The name suits him perfectly as he is known in the online circuit as a brilliant upcoming emcee.

Some of his past mixtape releases may have gangster connotations, but he’s not about that life anymore. “No more dirt for me,” Akapella laughs as he talks about the bigger and better things coming up. Later this year, he will be releasing the Reality Buzz mixtape, which he’s been putting together the last couple months.

He was selected to perform in Fadia Kader’s Perfect Attendance showcase after being recommended by BK Jaxon of the SP Agency. Taking this huge step in his career with a showcase that is mainly about bringing and adding to your fan base, Akapella admits he was never doing music for the fans until now. “When I started, I’ve always done me. It was never about fans until recently,” Akapella says.

The type of guy that claims to be and is, claims to do and does; on April 3rd there will be a performance that Atlanta has not seen but definitely needs to check out. There’s an oil mine in Columbus everyone should get familiar with. “I’m really gonna show Atlanta what we’re made of and what we got down there.”

More than a jackpot, it’s a movement. So get with it. - Miss Solow Dolow of Creative Loafing

Bio

"Got in the game when I was twelve, with the mind-state of a bigger man." Starting at a young age in Georgia, The Akapella began gaining a rep for being more than meets the eye. By 17, he'd gained a rep in battles for having a sharp tongue and a quick wit for punchlines. Nearing the end of his teens The Akapella was signed to Kandyshop Records before leaving for "an experience where [he'd] be pushed, daily." He found that in BK Jackson of The SP Agency. An independent entertainment and brand marketing agency with ties to Kmao Music Group (KMG).
