AK debuts on SpitFireHipHop with his ’30 Blunts’ video.
Hip-Hop prodigy AK has been climbing the ranks since his viral debut in 2016. At just 16 years old the New Jersey-bred independent artist earned mad respect for his rapid-fire rhymes, clever wordplay, and undeniable flow. AKâ€™s masterful skills are emphasized by his confidence and bravado, which is felt throughout his evolving cadences on every track. With talent beyond his years, AK has received stamps of approval across the hip-hop community and audiences alike.
Now at 20 years old AKâ€™s abilities have been further honed, this is showcased on his latest EP â€˜On Meâ€™. The project dropped April 3rd and is 18 incredible minutes of his unrelenting swagger as he delivers bars on top of bars. Today, heâ€™s releasing the official video for the EPâ€™s track â€œ30 Bluntsâ€, produced by Mike Mac and Jordan Baum. According to AK the song is about, â€œwhat it’s like being young and in the industry and how everyday there’s temptations to face. That shit’s hard to keep away from, I had my own experience where I realized I wasn’t prioritizing what I needed to. I got caught up because I’m young and just wanted to have some fun out of this life I built for myself and it started to take me away from what was important. I feel like this song is a fun way of explaining that somewhat serious and definitely relatable lesson.â€
The video perfectly captures the song’s message about the industryâ€™s temptations. When asked about the process AK shared, â€œThis video was a mad fun shoot. The idea of it was to physically show the battle between the temptation faced everyday versus the more innocent or focused side of us. Fun fact, me, Thad Swift (the director), Jacob Clark (Photographer on set) and Blayne B (the homie) actually rolled “30 Blunts” the night before the shoot so we had em for it the next day.â€
