AK is back with his new “Good Thing” single.
After a recent co-sign from Ebro Darden, who featured the New Jersey-bred rapper as a Discovered artist on his Beats1 radio show, AK is back with another track that captures his signature bravado and lyrical attack. Having become known for his top-notch lyricism, intelligent word-play, effortless flow, and unrelenting confidence – which has attracted over 1.6 million subscribers to his YouTube channel – AKâ€™s latest offering, â€œGood Thing,â€ stays true to the trend as he serves up another banger to his dedicated fanbase.
â€œGood Thingâ€ is a true pump up track meant to inspire, motivate, and â€œtap into the beast within.â€ The song, produced by Goldmvn, fits into that sweet spot that blends hip-hop and R&B, with AK smoothly transitioning between melodic verses and straight spitting rhymes, proving his versatility and range as an artist.
According to AK the songâ€™s about him appreciating his own hustle. He shares,â€œIf I wasnâ€™t a hustler and I listened to everything other people told me I wouldn’t be doing things the way thatâ€™s true to me. I hope it inspires my fans to push forward and progress in their respective fields. Dont let no one box you in. Create the box, don’t fill one.â€
The recording process was interrupted by the pandemic, so production adapted a modern, coast-to-coast approach to finalizing the track. AK reflects, â€œFor this song specifically me and Goldmvn linked up and he started this beat from scratch with me in the studio. I jumped in the booth and started freestyling melodies and based on the vibe of the beat I just fell into my 50 Cent type of Hustler bag, so I ran with that idea. I recorded most of the track in LA during that session and a few weeks later I came back home to Jersey before the Coronavirus got crazy intense and finished laying down the rest of the vocals on my own.â€
