Portrait of Akinde


About Akinde

Oakland, CA

Akinde has few equals when it comes to successfully blending the sounds of the Caribbean with that of the urban United States. A rich blend of reggae, soca, calypso and a generous serving of hip hop make up the ingredients of this explosive lyrical energy that is nothing less than absolute magic. An entrepreneur, activist and fluent lyricist, this gifted son of Trinidad and Tobago has created a major stir with his interpretation of this hybrid form of music known affectionately as rapso (the rap of calypso).
