Talented Atlanta based dancehall lyricist Akino Dirtfree, has big plans to add his own personal flavour to the dancehall industry with his raunchy style and flow especially with his new single ‘Loose Ball‘.
The Tivoli Gardens native believes that right now Dancehall is strong and growing worldwide and he is happy to be a part of that authentic movement.
“Dancehall is good right now and my coworkers are doing so well, that motivates me to go so hard with my lyrics, I just want to put out authentic Dancehall music despite me being around so many other genres,” Akino explained.
His new single ‘Loose Ball’ is an example of the raunchy authenticity that Akino believes is unique, the high energy relatable track that can connect with the masses. The artiste also felt it necessary to visit Jamaica for the genuine Dancehall vibe for the upcoming visuals for the Loose Ball single.
“The focus on making Dancehall hits is amplified in Jamaica, in Atlanta there are so many genres to choose from so everything gets watered down. Jamaica has the genuine and solid foundation because this is the Dancehall head office,” Akino added
Akino Dirtfree, now signed to Atlanta based label, Program Over Everything (POE) Music, believes that fans should rate his material because he is taking a refreshing approach in the way he does his music. He also intends to show versatility with his songs to appeal to different classes, ages and interests.
This will be even more evident with the upcoming tracks on his Mixtape to be released in a matter of weeks, including his ‘Mama Mi Queen‘ Remix featuring Reggae Icon Stephen Marley.
The Loose Ball single is now available for digital purchase on platforms worldwide, the official video will be released before the end of March.
