Akai Solo is back with seventeen tracks full of wisdom and unfiltered poetic excellence in his new project Ride Alone, Fly Together. With every line it’s like the listener watches him draw a picture. His words are descriptive, enabling visualization as canons fire off in the listeners’ head. Every song is rich with an abundance of historical references and valuable lessons. He’s both a professor and a poet.
The production is handled entirely by iblss, who offers a broad range of soundscapes. Roper Williams, iiye, David Earle, Flow Clark, rbchmbrs, and Awhlee also provide help in production. The only two features come from Pink Siifu and Lungs. All in all Ride Alone, Fly Together is an empowering and potent project. Check it out below.
