It's very rare for us to do a review on a mixtape for an R&B Artist but when the tape has a star studded featured cast and the artist acts as a voice of the streets as much as Akon it's only right that we give him the 6-6 stamp of Rawness! Mixtape vets DJ Whoo Kid & Evil Empire take on hosting duties on the Konvict Generals newest street offering.
Akon delivers 12 strong street savvy grimy tracks with strong guests' appearances from the likes of Yo gotti, Future, Fabolous, E-40 & Busta Rhymes along with new comer Young Swift. The tape kicks off with Used to Know where Akon is assisted by new comers Money J & Frost to murder an ill ass track with the popular Gotye sample. Akon then jumps on CashOut's #1 Single spitting a verse hotter than many rappers in the game today! On the Smokin' hot We On Kon teams up with Yo Gotti and has Gotti making Auto Tune sound ill as shit. Other highlights on this CD Include Ain't Sayin' Nothin, Salute 100 Ya'll, Be More Careful, Call The Police and Get By which sounds like it could have been produced by Dr. Dre. The Millionaire Konvict touches a variety of topics mainly focusing on street content and his riches while waving his African Flag. In a nutshell Akon breaks that R&B mold and other barriers as he always does and acts as a reminder to artist that originality is the key but then again once you have Lady Gaga Money U can do whatever the F*%k want! All in all this tape is straight Fire, Tune In Monday at 6pm & 10pm est. as 66RAW.com features Akon "Konkrete Jungle" in its entirety on Mixtape Monday!
