We hope that everyone out there is continuing to stay healthy (and indoors!) during this wild AF time we're all collectively dealing with across the world. Even though many of us are facing delays in our daily lives and plans ruined by the 'Rona, you can still count of PRIVILEGE & Lafayette to be here showing some crew love to those rocking with both brands.
This week we shine a light on AKTHESAVIOR & Leon Fanourakis, a hip-hop duo that's about to merge the best of Brooklyn with the burgeoning rap scene of Japan.
Many of you may already know AK as 1/2 of Flatbush-bred rap duo The Underachievers, acclaimed for their Lords Of Flatbush mixtape series and the supergroup Clockwork Indigo that he and Issa Gold formed with Flatbush Zombies. His latest hip-hop offshoot is alongside Leon, a young musical prodigy out of Yokohama that was winning rap battles left and right throughout Japan before dropping his debut EP titled BEAT TO DEATH under the moniker SHISHI (獅子) a few years ago. By the sound of their debut single "PICCOLO," this may be a match made in trap heaven.
Peep the bilingual music video for "PICCOLO" by AKTHESAVIOR & Leon Fanourakis off their upcoming project FLATBU$H ¥EN below, in addition to a quick flick of the guys rocking some stuff out the shop:
