WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

North London rapper, writer and founder of The Hip-Hop Shakespeare Company Akala burst onto the underground hip-hop scene back in 2004 when he became the first unsigned artist to appear on MTV UK's TRL show. His self-released debut, It's Not a Rumour, "fizzled with raw energy and outrageous talent" (BBC Music) and earned Akala the Best Hip Hop Artist award at the 2006 MOBOs (beating Kanye West to the title).
