    Product Details


    The new album from Boston hip-hop mainstay Akrobatik and follow-up to 2003's Balance, Absolute Value takes the listener on a journey through his diverse range, and he does not go at it alone. An impressive list of guest artists and producers that accompany Ak on Absolute Value include hip-hop legends, some of today's most powerful contemporary names, and members of the underground elite. It all comes off as if Akrobatik is conducting an orchestra of some of the most talented and respected artists in the game. After years of regional rap stardom and underground acclaim, Ak penetrated Hip-Hop's greater critical consciousness as one-third of The Perceptionists with Mr. Lif and DJ Fakts One. Their 2005 Def Jux release, "Black Dialogue," pitched some of music's most resounding criticisms of bandwagon pop culture and the Bush regime, and became the only indie rap project toregister on Rolling Stone's Top 50 Records of the Year list. With AV, Akro deals with issues both personal and socio-political, but never strays too far from his fist-pumping, party-inducing formula for bangers. The effects of life on the road, enlightening misguided youth, perseverance through the toughest of times, and the continuing struggle of Black America are among the issues Akro tackles on AV. And with production from the likes of J-Dilla, Illmind, Beatminerz, 9th Wonder, Hezekiah, J-Zone, and more, Akro has the perfect backdrops to get his points across while keeping the funk totally intact.The list of artists lending their vocal talents to Absolute Value is mind-boggling. Talib Kweli, Chuck D. of Public Enemy, Mr. Lif, Bumpy Knuckles, and Little Brother headline a guest list that would leave any true hip-hop fan brimming with excitement.

    Comment: Average album from an above average emcee. The EP for me is still his best sh-t. I wasn't thrilled with the produciotn or the lyricism. I was kind of bored to be honest.

    Comment: If Souja Boy can put out a gold album, then this album by Akrobatik should go 4x Diamond +5. And to think what is taking up the air waves is what is ruining hip hop and setting a horrible foundation for new rappers. If there are new records like this, then I dont know what is going on in the radio stations, and especially the market. Akrobatik should be huge right now, but you can blame all that on them southern snap rappers. A+ for Akrobatik.

    Comment: It's a solid album. I think akrobatik is very underated artist. He doesnt get the respect he deserves. Good album. From start to finish.

    Comment: It' A to the mufuggin K homeboy - AKROBATIK ! Back with the highly anticipated Absolute Value Between this and the Pete Rock - my downstairs neighbors hate me right now. Every beat has been carefully selected - every guest appearance comes completely correct, and the album doesn't really have any weak spots. I would definitely suggest picking this up, as it has the potential to be a serious 08 sleeper. Willie Evans Jr. and Therapy hold it down lovely on Track 8, the big homey JayCeeOh laces the cuts over the Dilla produced joint with Kweli, and Little Brother rock nicely alongside of Akro over some 9th Wonder beat mastery. I'm a definite fan of this joint - you will be too.
