At this point, it goes without saying that Roxbury has become the stomping ground for a large portion of the rising stars in Boston’s flourishing music scene right now. Artist after artist, the city never ceases to impress, and today, we’re proud to unveil the latest of these budding talents: AK. He’s been sitting behind the curtains for quite some time now, awaiting the perfect moment to arise from the shadows and make his debut onto the scene, so today, the switch turns – all this hard work is finally prepared and ready for release. Poised to turn some heads with his debut single, “On The Other Side of Jackson”, AK is the next name to know out of Roxbury.
Produced by Nape, the debut single from the local talent holds true to its infectious, rhythmic bounce, garnering attention by way of feeling and lyricism alike. At the very intersection of the two, we can find AK’s noteworthy skills – he holds a unique confidence when on the mic, and in regards to delivery, knows just how to float over a beat with a smooth flow and relaxed cadence. In this light, “On The Other Side of Jackson” is just the right single to introduce the city to AK, and I hold the utmost confidence in saying that he’s ready to make some serious waves with the work he has been putting in.
It’s also important to note that this track should act as the perfect anthem for getting to the bag in 2018. In all of its money-minded, soulful glory, each element comes together to make for an intoxicating ambition, and one that fans will surely be able to identify with right off of the bat. With that being said, listen to “On The Other Side of Jackson” at the link below and get hip to the latest out of Roxbury!
