Today we’re thrilled to premiere “WALK ON BY”, a new track and video from Chicago’s own AKONIxx.
Filmed by Cain Camacho, the first part of the video — which is almost like a short documentary — sees AKONIxx kicking it in a mansion with his guys before an interview. He gets asked, “You just graduated college with a STEM degree and now you own your own record label… how did you do it?” Smooth as ever, AKONIxx replies, “I just treat life like a race. Everybody’s gassing themselves, sprinting to get to the finish line. Where me? I just walk on by.” The beat, produced by Privatestock producer/engineer Markbombs and AKONIxx himself, takes off from there and AKONIxx weaves the tale of how his moves have him on the up. “I had to take a few L’s to see some better livin’,” he raps, “this life ain’t no game, there ain’t no way to play, you either in or you out, that’s what I’m on today.” Get in tune and stream “WALK ON BY” on AKONIxx’s Youtube channel below.
