Hailing from the new music capital Atlanta, Georgia, rising powerhouse emcee, and personality Akbar V has skyrocketed into the spotlight with provocative lyrics, action-packed punchlines, and fearless, uncensored confidence on and off the screen.
Born and raised in South Atlanta’s historic Cleveland Avenue neighborhood, Akbar was introduced to the streets at inception. While the city proved to be a breeding ground of difficulty for V: at one point facing a homicide charge and a close encounter with death after a shot to the head, she would eventually decide to make several lifestyle changes that would save her life.
Akbar would later connect with the Rock Crew Clique, which now is globally recognizable by the moniker, YSL. At the beginning of her career, she formed a friendship with Young Thug, which lead to the beginning of the boss-like bars to later follow.
The self-proclaimed Queen of Atlanta positions herself above the competition with her raw and rugged lyrics, unique style, and soulful approach to music. Akbar V is making her mark in the entertainment industry and is poised to be a household name.
In 2020, Akbar V released her new single “Bitch Like Me,” and a few other anthems like, “Always Be” and remixed Drake’s take on Jay-Z’s ‘Songcry,’ ‘When To Say When.’ Overall, Akbar V is focused on her career and giving her fans affectionately called, Akbartians, the absolute best music possible. Her forthcoming project entitled ‘Coldest Summer II’ will be a sequel to its predecessor, dropping Summer 2020. In the meantime, Akbar V releases singles weekly to put the world on notice that she’s here to stay.
Solidifying her industry career, Akbar landed collaborations with the likes of 21 Savage, K. Michelle, Trouble, Lil’ Mo, Lil’ Keed, Dave East and so many more – at a rapid pace. Her hard work paid off from landing a lead cast roll in the largest-watched franchise on television Love and Hip Hop: Atlanta to opening up on Lil Wayne’s sold out 2019 Lil Weezymania.
In recent news, Akbar has inked a deal with BluePrint Group becoming the First Lady of the label ready to set the tone and show what Akbar V is made of!
