    If he's responsible for the art on his album covers and posters, then this might be worth a pickup. Have you read the Ruins of Empires book?

    nah i haven't, only gotten into akala seriously this year.. i had checked him years ago, and i loved the tunes he's made with lowkey/logic.. but his own stuff doesnt do it for me... mah birthday on the 7th, going to get the book an graphic novel.

    this year bought a few of his albums.thieves banquet, and knowledge is power vol 1 and 2.. also checked out lots of his oxford uni seminars.... really got into him again after hearing his freestyle on fire in the booth 4.. where he discusses his graphic novels.. (even spits a story from his book ruins of empire.. i think its like 13 mins in on the fire in the booth video)



    check the reviews.. http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/2...ins-of-empires



    mind blowing freestyle this ; not heard any of these lyrics by him before...



    from 11:30 he spits from the book ruins of empires.... reminds me alot of the amazing movie; cloud atlas.
