What is hip hop? Some battle with that question; but I however embrace it in its' essence. I feel regardless of his age, this artist embraces the foundations of hip hop as well. I feel like you gotta respect that. To me, the 18 year old emcee is repping himself... purely his soul; but wants you to know where he's from. Louisiana native Ka$h Akbar was born in Kenner, LA and raised in La Place, LA; about 20-30 miles from New Orleans. When you hear this young mogul's flow you will see now more than ever why GNO and surrounding areas produce such talent.
