The Coldest Summer will introduce Akbar V as the hardest female MC out of Atlanta with the strength of the city on her back! With a new definition on the title, V is eliminating the competition with bars but uniting the Culture with #BigMamaTalk. With features from Atlanta’s 21 Savage, Trouble, Lil’ Mo, Derez De’Shon, the production is an homage to an Atlanta boss that has yet to falter. With the help of V’s bars, features, and pure talent, the project is sure to make this ‘The Coldest Summer.’ Check it out inside!
The Coldest Summer is available on Dat Piff, My Mixtapes and Spinrilla. The body of work will be available on Apple Music and Spotify Friday, August 31st.
This tracklist takes you through a #ColdSummer with Akbar V. The first track brings you directly into her world where she’s telling you it’s going to be a COLD SUMMER. REAL ATLANTA establishes the scene where this Cold Summer takes place and lets you know where and what Akbar represents. Success doesn’t come without struggle.
Akbar next gives you a glimpse of what life is like before the fame with BROKE BEFORE. In the streets its survival of the fittest. You can’t settle for being broke. WIT IT and GRISELDA BLANCO takes you through a rise to success. She will get it by any means necessary cuz she’s with the shit! That attitude turns into a success that looks like the notorious boss bitch Griselda Blanco.
Although she’s a boss, like all ladies, Akbar has a heart and allows love to make her fall. The next 3 songs; THUG ME, JAIL TALK, COMPLICATED, takes you through a journey of a rollercoaster relationship. After hurt, pain, ups, and downs, the only place you can turn to is the man up above. PRAYED UP and BIBLE gives us a testimony of resilience and a code to live by to live a better life. The album closes letting you know even though it’s been a Cold Summer, Akbar perseveres. GRASS GREENER and BEST THING EVER let you know just how she got through!
