Top Akh is the professional name of independent hip-hop recording artist, Tarik Bakkal. He dropped his debut video to YouTube over a decade ago. Since then he has released a steady string of singles across multiple platforms.
Originally from Morocco, Top Akh now calls Boston, Massachusetts home. The genre-bending international rapper has connected with fans worldwide, thanks to popular tracks like “Bella”, “XOXO”, and last year’s “Cold Hearted”. The prolific emcee has been on fire recently, dropping over a dozen videos in the past year.
“Done Dirty” is the brand new video from Top Akh, released worldwide via YouTube on August 6, 2023. As the track opens, a solo cello sets an ominous vibe with a dark minor-key riff. Soon the beat drops on a hard trap groove. On the mic, the rapper delivers an autobiographical drill freestyle about gang violence, and loss.
