Akshan ft. Thad Reid - Functional Addict

Posted 6 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Brian "B-Keyz" Wilson
Album:
The I-Brid

Previously heard on the hooks of Thad Reid‘s Cruzin’ and Look My Way, Jamaican-born, Atlanta-based singer Akshan has cashed in his favors and enlisted the Blue Collar emcee for his first Booth feature as a headliner. On newly-leaked album inclusion Functional Addict, the artist makes a relatively unsurprising confession: he simply can’t get enough of the herb (aka weed, ganja, bud, haze…). Reid can clearly relate to Akshan’s marijuana dependency; in his closing verse, the Virginia native dispels all doubts as to his his drug of choice: “Got people thinkin’ I’m all about sippin’, but I’m all about the green stuff.” Backed by Brian “B-Keyz” Wilson’s midtempo blend of jackhammer percussion and aggressive electric-guitar riffage, this THC-drenched banger is sure to become the soundtrack for many a smoking session, but those who choose not to partake are still well-advised to give it a spin. For more hot hip-hop/dancehall jams, check out the currently unsigned artist’s The I-Brid LP, set to hit stores and online retailers sometime in spring of 2010.
