Akello Light released the 2nd part of his two part series rapping about love called “My Future Wife.” The South Carolina producer Obsidian Blue helped put this laid-back hip hop project together by laying down all of the beats while Akello Light layers on the smooth talk. My only wish was that the tracks were more then two minutes long. I just can’t get enough. Go check out the full EP at Akello Light’s Bandcamp page.
