Aktu el Shabazz is a talented rapper, Hip-Hop Artist, and songwriter, with a unique style and strong connection with his art. Originally from Haiti and based in Vancouver, Aktu shapes his sound, incorporating the best vibes from the golden age of Hip-Hop and much more. Versatile and innovative, his sound follows the paths of legends such as Pharcyde, Nas, Blackmoon, and Outkast, and the more moderns sound of Kendrick, J Cole, Doppelgangaz, Playboi Carti, and Denzel curry, to name a few!
“Winter’95” starts with “Regular Show Freestyle,” a track that sets the mood for this release and introduces us to Aktu El Shabazz’s world. “Major League” follows right after, with its catchy sound and vibes. “Home,” the third track of this superb release, shows Aktu’s incredible versatility. Excellent arrangements and dynamic sound changes make this track a pure gem or modern music.
“Barney Rubble” redirects us to the best Hip-Hop vibes of the early 2000s, fantastic beat, and intense lyrics describe new soundscapes where Aktu shows another side of his talent. “Laundry Room” and its experimental arrangement, followed by the modern Hip-Hop vibes of “Nightking,” lead us towards the end of the album where “Summer’95” and “Winter’95” close the circle in the best way possible. Like chapters of a book, both songs describe intense stories that take life thanks to the incredible interpretational skills of Aktu, the excellent arrangement, and fantastic songwriting!
