Southern Hip Hop has literally been an entertaining and soul-stirring affair since its inception and up-and-coming lyricist Akeem Ali is looking to uphold tradition with his album D.E.A.D (Do Em All Dirty).

Hailing from the same Jackson, Mississippi whereabouts as Big K.R.I.T. (who joins along on the 13-song album), T.I., Landstrip Chip assist on the raps and venerable producers such as Honorable C.N.O.T.E. and C Gutta hold down the boards.
