New Music Video: SIR – Akheim Allen

Following on from last year’s explosive reintroduction with ‘Wavs Dnt Die’ and ‘Memo’, which garnered support from BBC 1Xtra, Clash Magazine, Highsnobiety, Trench Magazine, and Spindle Magazine, among others, Edmonton rapper, songwriter and producer AKHEIM ALLEN, formerly known as the artist PW, is back with his brand new single titled ‘SIR’ and its accompanying music video, as premiered via The FADER – this is the first of two offerings to be released between now and the end of the year, leading up to a brand new EP in 2020.

Produced by O12, who has previously worked with the likes of Octavian, Stormzy, Ebenezer, Melii and Koder, and accompanied by a gripping music video, shot and directed by exciting newcomers B2 Creative, ‘SIR’ is a hard-hitting offering led by ominous synth keyboard arrangements and infectious wobbly drum patterns, over which AKHEIM ALLEN waxes lyrical on hustling back to back, and doing whatever is necessary to achieve your goals, while showcasing his captivating flow, writing skills and commanding presence, all traits that make him one to watch right now.

Possessing the lyricism and wordplay of Wretch 32, Avelino or Jay Prince, AKHEIM ALLEN comes championed by the likes of BBC Radio 1, The FADER, Complex, RWD Magazine, Capital Xtra, DAZED, GRM Daily, Link Up TV, and MTV Base, to mention a few. The Edmonton native is fast-emerging as one of the best rappers coming out of North London, while his skills as a producer (Wretch 32, Yxng Bane, WSTRN) makes him a definite cut above his peers.
