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.

SPEECH – A Different World (Reaction To Capitol Insurrection)

Published

 “This song had to be made to become proactive in shaping our collective future, because the rebellion that happened on January 6, 2021, in Washington D.C. was the curtain being pulled back on race, lies, and darkness in America,” Speech explains. “It’s obvious that about half of America is living in a fictitious bubble and are responding accordingly. That’s why I wanted to share facts about the lawlessness and hypocrisy that was occurring. We may be at the start of another Civil war and a lot of bloodshed.” -SPEECH

Atlanta, GA…Like millions of other Americans, Grammy Award-winning artist Speech of the legendary Afro-centric Hip Hop group Arrested Development watched in horror as a swath of die-hard Trump loyalists stormed the U.S. Capitol building in Washington D.C. As the dedicated MC he is, Speech put the pen to paper and spit out the single “A Different World,” an anthemic call-to-action that both preserve his artistic integrity and passion for socio-political issues.

“On the night of the terrorist attack that already killed five people, I did a YouTube post, I posted various things on social media, but none of it seemed adequate, especially from a music documentation perspective,” he said of the song’s evolution. “So, I went into the studio, pulled out my Beat Thang, sampler, etc. The jazz/boom bap energy for this song was intentional, meant to be a throwback energy from the ‘90s-type approach. In my opinion, those sensibilities lend themselves to reflection, grooves, and hope, while still showing the urgency of this moment. I also purposely rhymed with a higher pitch, cuz I wanted my emotions of helplessness, rage but also engagement to come through.” -SPEECH

“A Different World” follows Expansion Pt. 1, Speech’s first solo EP in 14 years, and will appear on his upcoming full-length album Expansion. As he flirts within the song’s breakdown, “This is a time for good-hearted people of all races that love Hip Hop to show the world a path to peace and truth! Plot, Plan, Strategize, Organize and Mobilize. Please spread the vibes. We aren’t helpless, we can make a different world.”
