How AKONIxx Is Preparing For The Winter

In the months since AKONIxx dropped his latest project Torn back in may (which we wrote about here) the 21 year-old Chicago emcee has been quietly plotting his next move. If you follow him on social media you would have seen that he’s been making a lot of trips out to Indiana throughout the summer, and today he has announced why. A statement from the rapper says “AKONIxx has teamed up with KingzOf to release his new single ‘Holy Ghost’ as well as announcing their new partnership. KingzOf will be executively producing AKONIxx’s new project.”

You may remember their credit on “PlyBoy S**t” off Torn, but today’s release marks a new phase in AKONIxx’s career. “I aim on expanding my sound outside of rap for ’19” he said when asked about where he sees the new partnership going. Of the track “Holy Ghost” he said, “My mood changes drastically when the weather follows, it’s getting cold out so I thought I’d match the weather.”

Stream “Holy Ghost” below and stay on the lookout for more new music from AKONIxx (also for his old fans AKSZN is now available on all streaming platforms)
