Boston rapper Akrobatik released his first project, The EP in 2000 on Detonator Records, but it was his 2003 debut full-length album, Balance, that cemented his reputation as an important emcee in the music business. The lead single, the Illmind-produced Remind My Soul, was named to About.com’s 100 Greatest Hip-Hop Songs Of All Time. A frequent partner in rhyme with fellow Bostonian Mr. Lif, Akrobatik appeared along with Mr. Lif and DJ Fakts One as the Perceptionists (a name they had had since 2000), released the album Black Dialogue on Def Jux, and the next year Akro signed a solo contract with Fat Beats. Black Dialogue was named to Rolling Stone’s Top 50 Albums of the Year, and the group toured constantly in support of the now classic LP. Before releasing his next album, Akro found a gig with popular Boston radio station 94.5 FM announcing the daily sports news in verse in the “Sports Rap-Up” segment, which lead to multiple endorsement deals with NFL, NBA, Pepsi, and others. In February of 2008, Absolute Value, an album that featured guest appearances from Talib Kweli, Chuck D. of Public Enemy, Little Brother, and of course, Mr. Lif and Fakts One, came out to rave reviews. Akro’s momentum was cut short when a ruptured aorta sent him to emergency surgery and a lengthy recovery during 2011. He emerged healthier than ever in 2014 and released his third solo album Built To Last was named to SPIN’s to 40 Hip-Hop Albums of 2014. independently, and went back on the road for a European tour with Massachusetts colleagues Edo G., Reks, and Termanology. Built to Last Akro’s next project is a full album with Finland’s LX Beats titled Antihero. The project’s first single and video, Shotgun, was #1 on the Rapstation.com chart for several weeks. The most recent single from the duo, Migrate, features M-Dot and is currently in rotation on The Wake Up Show on Shade 45.
