Aka Frank 

Celebrating his album release with a day party at Brick & Mortar Music Hall.

There are a number of ways to take a stand on important social issues. East Bay rapper Aka Frank did so in an unabashedly sleazy fashion with his single “Racist (My Dick Ain’t),” an anthem for those whose attraction knows no bounds as far as culture and ethnicity are concerned. The song was an underground hit when it came out three years ago and was played frequently at local dance parties and DJ nights. Since then, Aka has been hugely prolific. As a former member of Diligentz, a teenage rap group that was active in the Aughts and also featured Jay Ant from HBK Gang, he frequently works with HBK and Shmoplife artists and released an excellent collaborative mixtape with IAMSU last summer titled Biggie Smalls. The tape featured gems such as the morning-after soundtrack, “Backwoods and Backrubs,” as well as “Lane Switching,” which features Lil Uzi Vert, who has since become a viral sensation. Now, Aka Frank is back with Aka Frank Vol. 3, a nineteen-track album rife with hyperactive party tracks and features from prominent East Bay artists such as Lil B and J. Stalin. He celebrates the album’s release with a day party at Brick & Mortar Music Hall this Saturday.
