Conscious rapper Akala has released his fourth studio album today (27th May 2013). The album weighs in at 11 tracks long, plus a bonus. The snippets are available below. Whilst Akala’s recognisable flow is ever present, you’ll notice the beats are not particularly Hip Hop. Those that are looking to expand their minds and listen to an intelligent MC distributing his thoughts, you need to get this.

You can grab the album now from iTunes, and see more from Akala’s site. More information on Akala and other albums is available below this article.

There is also an album launch party planned for the 3rd June (Monday) at XOYO in London.
