Black Sand is the 2019 collaborative effort between AKAI SOLO & Pink Siifu, two of hip hops most exciting artists working today. Pink Siifu, under the moniker iiye, lays down a gorgeous and dusty soundscape, also lending his voice alongside AKAI SOLO's, as they explore the concept of blackness and the intricacies of living in America and being in touch with one’s self. With help from Maassai, Nelson Bandela, King Carter, and Adam Intrator, AKAI & Siifu craft a beautiful, thought-provoking record that demands attention and acknowledgement.
