AKIR – “New York” [Directed by Court Dunn]….
As a vital part of Immortal Technique’s Viper Records roster and with upcoming shows with Tech & Brother Ali & Rock The Bells, 2013 finds Akir bringing the spotlight back to music with his new forthcoming LP The Plan; which will be released on 9-24-0213 words aren’t just words and his album title is not just an album title. The Plan is just that” Akir states, “my map for a musical journey on the way to becoming better.”
The Plan is produced in majority by Akir and his beat-making parternership with Ty Steez (The Sound) along with Omen with features from his “Rebel Army” brothers Immortal Technique, Poison Pen & Swave Sevah and is a major-step forward for the lyricist and producer.
The Plan promises to make 2013 a huge year for Akir as he says “this album has another level of music presence, taking my pre-existing formula to a larger audience. My first-project, Street Edition, was for the streets, but now I am aiming for the world”!
Today, Akir & Court Dunn release the latest installment of Court Dunn’s “One Shot” video series “New York,” taken from Akir’s FocusEP.
