Akira The Don:
Pop Renaissance Man

West Brom’s finest son, Akira The Don (real name Adam Narkiewicz) lists his influences as Morrissey, Billy Bragg, Ice Cube, and The Wu Tang Clan.

He’s a modern Renaissance man in every sense of the term – cartoonist, videographer, blogger, rapper, and producer. Musically he combines hook-ridden pop with alt hip hop. Fans of Jamie T will approve, but there’s so much more on offer here than that comparison implies.

His new single “We Won’t Be Broke Forever” featuring Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals) is just out, and it’s a cracker. “It is a beautiful and inspirational anthem for our times,” explains Akira. The single also features a very cool Dan Le Sac remix, and an instrumental version, replete with personally approved Dollar sample.
