New York-based rising MC & songwriter, Akiem Small, has announced that he will release a new single on June 29th of this year in 2018.
Akiem’s track “Problems”, contemporary Hip Hop at it’s most infectious and compelling, was engineered by Andrew Krivonos and will be available digitally in both clean and uncensored versions from all the usual major platforms.
The song is about a man who has troubles with money and loves women. The track conveys a versatile fusion of Trap and R&B, but also takes an influence from Hip Hop and Retro R&B.
“…’Problems‘ tells a story about the type of person I am – a problem solver” commented Small. “…’Problems‘ come in all shapes, sizes, and forms and I know these are lyrics that many, many people from all kinds of environments can relate to.”
Born in the West Indies, Akiem Small made his way to New York determined to make his mark on the city’s music scene in 2014 and has been based there ever since. An artist that strives to make heartfelt and honest music, he writes and sings about urban life and what’s going on around him. The last four years in his new hometown have certainly been eventful and he’s gained more than an album’s worth of material from the experience.
A truly exciting young and rising Rap prospect, the multi-talented Small is without doubt one to watch and although he has yet to play live publicly, he has thrilled those lucky enough to catch him perform at close quarters.
“..’Problems‘ by Akiem Small is my favorite single of the season so far. He has a very versatile rap flow and I can’t wait to hear more from him.” Michelle S.
