Coming out of Dorchester, MA, Akrobatik has been making noise for several years now, releasing an EP and multiple singles, such as the notorious "Internet MCs" joint back in '99. On his debut full-length, Balance, he flaunts a smooth but strong rhyme style, addressing ever-pertinent topics like the ladies, knuckleheads and real hip-hop. Production duties are handled by Fakts One, DJ Revolution, Diamond D and Da Beatminerz, who all come nice with bump-heavy, sample-based beats. Standout tracks include the seductive funk of "Woman II," the autobiographical "Here And Now," and "Wreck Dem," a rowdy collabo with Mr. Lif.
