Information of Akinyele
Akinyele (born Akinyele Adams) (pronounced aa-kin-ELL-ee) is an American emcee who recorded in the 1990s and early 2000s, known for his sexually explicit lyrics, including his 1996 underground radio hit "Put it in Your Mouth". Other songs include "The Bomb", though "Put it in Your Mouth" is one of the most widely known.
He went to the same high school as Nas, Kool G Rap, and Large Professor. Together with Nas, he made his first appearance on the "Live at the BBQ" track of the Main Source album Breaking Atoms in 1991.
Akinyele patented a guttural rapping style, one that allowed him to accent words by quickly dropping into a lower octave. That signature became more pronounced as Akinyele evolved his style, particularly after "Live at the BBQ," and no other rapper has quite the same lyrical approach.
