Single Review: Akash – “Text Me”

Akash is an emerging Indian-American artist from New Jersey. After releasing his debut album, Rooftop Vibes, last summer, “Text Me” gathered recognition from numerous underground hip hop publications, primarily on the basis of its hook factor.

Lyrically, it’s sensible in that regard. A song that highlights the modern outcome of communication going awry is something teenagers relate to especially now. Having come of age around this time, Akash seems to know this best. When texting with the opposite sex, there’s not only the outright satisfaction of having plans succeed, but the subtly fickle outrage-turns-to-forgiveness phase when it falls through.

From a stylistic standpoint, “Text Me” has a more or less straightforward presentation. It’s not as instrumentally or texturally involved as a lot of the tracks on Rooftop Vibes, but it doesn’t need to be. Plenty of singing is present to supplement the rapping, and the chorus is sufficient in carrying that excitement – the sheer thrill from feelings, much like texts, simply being exchanged.

About Jake Kussmaul

I come from a family who is passionate about all things music. I learned to sing at an early age, and by 13, had my very own Fender Strat guitar. I tried my hardest at learning all that I could. Because I was born with cerebral palsy, I had to teach myself an adaptive playing style. I learned to write and record my own music, despite these difficulties. In college, I started making great use of my writing abilities by reviewing music, as well as copy editing. I guess it's best to stick with what you know, while welcoming a fair challenge at the same time.
