Da Supa EP: The Evolution of a Myndsoulja
Photos By : Andrew Fullerton - FullertonPhotography. Ca TreyMyndz A.K.A Akebulan was born Daniel Njie Makoge on july 19th, 1984 in Cameroon West Afrika. He was only 41/2 when his family emigrated to Canada, and spent 8 years living in Ottawa's impoverished west side (Bayshore PJs) before his family opted for better things in life, and moved to Toronto's east side (Durham Region). It is here where his love for lyricism grew, and was moulded when he teamed up with his longstanding core, Myndsoulja Family (M.S.F). More interested in black history, political rights, and Afrikan casualties, Akebulan never intended to be an MC. His passion for rap was deep, but it became a lifestyle when Myndsoulja's Asim and JR (already seasoned MC's) taught him to freestyle at age 17. Within a year he recorded his first verse on Asim's as yet un-released "Creator...from Project Hype to Asim". His passion turned to love for Hip-Hop, and by 21 he was a true mc. Freestylling was never an issue, but Ak elected not to release any material because his delivery and songwriting both needed work. After years of honing his mic skills, dealing with life issues, and debating whether or not to deal with the "Industry Giant", Ak is ready to release music starting with his upcoming mixtape release " Tha North American Afrikan" due out in the fall of 2009.
