Akala celebrates 10 years since his critically acclaimed album It's Not A Rumour with his largest tour to date in October.
The eclectically rich album, which even samples The Clash on 'This is London', bagged the multi-talented rap artist a MOBO award and gave his socially informed wordplay a nationwide platform. (Listen to 'Carried Away' from his forthcoming album below.)
Since then Akala has released multiple records alongside becoming an influential figure, shedding light on issues we face in society through the power of spoken word, literature and guest lectures.
He supports his decade long influence with 10 Years Of Akala, released on Tuesday 23rd September via Ill State Records.
