Some say there's a thin line between love and hate and even a smaller thread between cocky and confident. Akream knows all sides too well. Jealousy and envy surround those who are young, confident, and determined to succeed. This is what Akream battled growing up in the last frontier and exactly what he used to sharpen his edge over competition.
In the early stages of his life, Akream did the same things most kids do, play sports, chase girls around the neighborhood and cause a little trouble here and there. But his childhood ran short. As the oldest of 8 children, he had to learn how to fend for himself as a man and handle business way before he was taught the basics of geometry or chemistry. He derived his education from life itself and developed the street mentality of a hustler. It was at this early age that he figured out what he wanted, how he would get it, and what it would take to make it happen. That's more than most figure out before deciding on which college to attend and Akream was only 16 years old.
With nothing to lose and everything to gain, Akream set his vision of Arctic Flow Records in motion. His first move was to make an album, so Akream hooked up with Phresh Kutz from Central Cali and released a 5 song EP "AK Blunted." Soon after the EP, Akream joined forces with another crew named Star Spangle Grammar and decided this was how he would take the industry by storm. They would all come together to make another Akream album, this time a full length LP entitled "Way Too Cold." The album showed all the non-believers that Arctic Flow Records was for real and this was only the beginning.
Immediately after "Way Too Cold," Akream began writing and recording new material for Arctic Flow's next installment, Josh Boots' solo album entitled, "Cold Weather Survival Guide". Featured on four songs, Akream stepped up his game in all aspects and proved that with each project The Flow would continue to progress. Now, Akream is putting the final touches on his next solo album, "Digital Penetration" and is also overseeing Arctic Flow's compilation album. Akream is poised to make Arctic Flow successful no matter the cost.
Everybody has a dream, few make it reality.
