In December 2016, Rick Ross expressed these exact words to Atlanta’s emerging lyricist Akbar V after showing up at his northside mansion along with a bag of Checkers as a humble offering in exchange for spiting a tantalizing verse for the boss himself. Enjoy this audio stream below after the jump.
Life is no easy task for any living thing that calls this earth home. If one would take the time to look at nature and observe its course, you will soon observe the pattern of seasons. We all have are own seasons of good tidings, seasons of despair, and even ones of redemption. Often times the beautiful lotus flower grows out of the mud and its pedals are a spectacle for the world to behold. Atlanta’s newest female MC is that flower. With a passion for success and a love for God, the talented AkbarV has got it out the mud and is ready to enter into her season of reaping.
Born and raised off of South Atlanta’s historic Cleveland Ave. neighborhood, Akbar was introduced to the streets at a very young age. With and absentee father and a mother addicted to drugs, V realized early on that she would have to provide for herself. She would spend her childhood in and out of several foster homes until her aunt took over as her legal guardian. After a close encounter with death and a homicide charge, V would decide to make several lifestyle changes that payed off for the better.
Akbar attributes her change in lifestyle to her faith in God. She was able to see the silver lining through the stormy weather and choose to eliminate any negative energy from her inner circle. She would later link up with the Rock Crew clique, which is now YSL. She would form friendships with Young Thug and pursue her own career as an artist.
What separates V from the competition is her tough lyrics, unique style, and soulful approach to her craft. All in all, Akbar V is focused on her career and giving her fans the absolute best music possible. Her new project titled ‘Silent Cries’ will be dropping later this year. In the meantime, Akbar V has three singles dropping to put Atlanta on notice that she’s her to stay including “3 Dollars No Tax.” Few will understand the story of the Lotus but its admires have to respect its struggle. AkbarV will forever be a testament to life and its changing seasons.
