Akee Fontane “Respected” Feat. Da Baby Visual @iamfontane

Published

on

Akee Fontane has released the official video for “Respected” featuring DaBaby.

Akeem Coston, known by the world as Akee Fontane is a rapidly-emerging American hip-hop artist from Wilmington, Delaware who’s attracting attention for his deeply creative vibe and unique lyrical flows.

Fontane began his journey towards becoming an artist when his older brother Keon put a pen in his hand at just five years old. By age 12, he was freestyling in rap battles, developing the skills to instantly express himself over any type of track. Fontane can rock a club banger but can also show listeners a more personal part of himself through lyrics pulled from the events of his life, including being put out on the street at 17 and surviving in a city where a 21st birthday is not guaranteed. These experiences give Fontane and his music a toughness that’s authentic and original.

His latest releases, Big Dreams Small City (distributed by Pure Luxury Ent.) and G.A.B.O.S dropped in 2019 to major acclaim but multiple platforms. Big City Small Dreams was produced by Grammy-nominated Atlanta producer The Shoota. Taking inspiration from icons like Tupac, Biggie Smalls, and Jay-Z as well as other up-and-comers like himself, Fontane has crafted a set of music that is fresh, real, and relevant.

Akee loves performing for his fans and absorbing their energy. He always gives them everything he has. He’s driven to succeed by his love for his son and by the memories of surviving the bitter Eastern winters that built his character at an early age. Akee Fontane is an important and inventive voice in the state-of-the-art music world of today.

Not able to shoot a regular video because of social distancing, Akee decided on an animated video. The animated visual for “Respected” was edited by Bucks Baga.

His latest project “G.A.B.O.S (Game Ain’t Based On Sympathy)” is out on all major platforms.

BRB Loopy – “Blessing”

Recently Midwest rapper and prominent East St. Louis rapper BRB Loopy delivered his new visual “Blessing” to fans. Fresh out of the hospital and in recovery from a vicious shooting that almost took him from his family and loved ones, BRB Loopy returns with strength and delivers an emotional visual after taking five shots.

“I just want the fans, the older fans, the newer ones just coming in, I appreciate you all. Going through what I went through over the past few months, I know people and fans have gone through what I’ve gone through and hopefully if fans go through this they can relate. I just hope they can stick with me because we on the way for sure,” BRB Loopy explained.

As of now this song will be a single, but according to management BRB Loopy will just continue to release singles through Create Music through the next few releases.

“When I put the album together this will be on there for sure,” BRB Loopy said. “Create is bringing their staff and they are known for their social media presence. They reached out to us and so we are going to release a few records through them and see how this goes.”

In the visual BRB Loopy can be seen with his kids embracing them and holding them closely, as his perspective on life has truly changed after being humbled by the nearly fatal shooting.

“A lot has changed quickly, I got shot 5 times, I lost a kidney, still working on getting my right leg back together. After I got shot I got pulled out of my hospital bed by police and I’m still fighting a case with an ankle monitor, but the situation woke me up and the situation is a lesson learned for real for real and it’s a blessing to be alive, which is how I came up with the song” BRB Loopy said.

Refusing to give in to the perpetrators and quit rapping BRB Loopy embraced this challenge in his life by fighting for his life and coming home to his family.

“The image that I wanted to get out is about family. I wanted to make sure people felt the song and then putting those images with the song, it shows people that this is real life, this is something that really went on. The hospital scene, my family interacting in the church scene, it made sure that I was bringing everything to life. I had my family members come out so that it made it look like a full church and it really helped my image and the family images I wanted to put out,” BRB Loopy said.

With Summer on the brink of breaking through BRB Loopy has his sights on establishing some stability and focus to continue to crank out records.

“I got court this Summer and then I got my birthday and I’m hoping to get this ankle monitor removed so that I can do shows, radio and appearances that I want to make. Then I will probably be moving to Florida or Atlanta and just putting everything in my music.”

My upcoming EP is called Love and Pain. It’s about working out the balance between nurturing a relationship with someone I love while pushing forward with my ambitions in music. The project was created with a guerrilla style approach during the pandemic. The isolation occurred at the same time that I was going through a break up so I created three songs that speak to the love I had and three more about dealing with the loss.” – B.V.M
