Akheim Allen is making waves in the vast ocean of the urban scene and has managed to get himself noticed as one of the most promising new artists to surface this year. His single ‘Sensible’ is out on September 19th and comes from his forthcoming mix tape ‘NKOTB’. Meet the newest kid on the block…PW.
Not only has he secured a strong and expanding fan base with the completion of his schools tour, but the 19 year old has support from a number of huge commercial radio stations.
