Video: AKS – Parity

In Hip Hop by Nick Russell

Exploring themes of parenting, family and culture, London emcee AKS does a great job on this emotionally driven and soul infused single ‘Parity’. This is the second single from the third and final instalment of his EP series ‘Modes of Transport’. Some real talk from start to finish here, and the vocals fit nicely with the smooth and jazzy production which AKS was behind.

Speaking about the inspiration behind ‘Parity’, AKS says, “The song is about purpose really. The notion that we do the best we can for our kids so that their starting point in life is beyond where ours was. I’m sure that was also our parent’s aim, and in that from generation to generation, there’s a sense of commonality in that. Parity. I wanted to explore generational differences – both the things that separate us from the generations that came before us, and those points of commonality that unite us. Like, wanting the best for your kids is universal right?
