Raised with some of the best inventors of funk and hip hop music, A.K.A. lived for 4 years with his uncle, whom gave him a good education in how to make music and how to write. It shows that he was an excellent student and then some, he has since taken the lessons he was given and applied it to what he does now. A.K.A. had this to say about his music; "I make music based on what I feel , with no gimmicks no corny dances.
I am all about having fun and getting the crowd involved. I want people to have a mental picture in their mind of the story i am telling them and be able to relate to it if it pertains to them. I am here to show everyone that real hip hop still exists, there are those of us still true to the art form. A.K.A. also counts LL Cool J, Common, Mos Def, Talib Kweli, Notorious B.I.G., Andre 3000 and a long list of others as his influences and feels his music reflects their flow and style.
One listener of his music writes, "You wont catch him talking about gang banging or anything ignorant." Rather, he specializes in being a storyteller and has spread his talent throughout Washington state. A prolific creator of mix-tapes, you can find his songs on many of the 12 mixtapes that he released in the summer of 2010.
