Sometimes we find random artists on Soundcloud and post them. Don't loose faith. Akienz is exactly that. Thanks to Soundcloud's autoplay feature, after listening to whatever I was listening too (can't recall), Akienz started playing. I was intrigued and headed to his page only to find a relatively new project, Something's About to Happen.
The project showcases Akienz's catchy flows, as he jumps between some light auto-tune/pitch correction to rapping without it. It's definitely filled with vibez, and it's got a cohesive sound, thanks to Akienz's crew of producers, Dree The Drummer, Matth Beats and more.
For a little background information, Akienz is a Woodbridge, VA native, who in another life did daily YouTube vlogs. After turning to music, he slipped away for a good three years to perfect the sound we're hearing on Something's About to Happen.
Let us know what you think of Akienz. The project is stream-only, but you can cop it on iTunes for the low low.
