It’s time to introduce you to the newest featured On The Rise artist. He goes by AKR and he is very versatile. I would describe him and his sound as if Dom Kennedy and Drake had a little brother. His music impressed me and theres only more to come for this California based artist. Check out our interview below to learn more about his music and his big plans for the future!
Where Are You From?
“I’m AKR from the Los Angeles/IE area.”
How Would You Describe Your Style?
“My style is a hip-hop/R&B sound with a lot of melodic sounds and vocals. I’m very versatile and can switch up on almost every category.”
Who Are Your Biggest Musical Influences?
“My biggest influences are Dom Kennedy, Drake, Nipsey Hussle.”
What Inspired You To Start Making Music?
“I’ve always been around music for years and making it, but a couple years ago I started recording music off my IPhone on Garageband. I would post songs on SoundCloud and people would tell me that I had a gift and I should take it all the way serious. So at that point, that’s what really inspired me to go harder and take it serious knowing that I had people behind me.”
What Are Your Plans For The Future?
“For the future I will be dropping more music. I have my debut project “SLEEP WELL” coming out which will be R&B/Hip-Hop within the next couple of months. Also, I will be working with a lot more artists and will continue pushing my brand/label.”
