This innovative reputation was the starting point for the indie underground hip-hop group 40 Akerz, which is comprised of Nappy Roots members Skinny DeVille & Fish Scales. 40 Akerz promises a mixture of grit, reality, drugs, sex and struggle. The lead single, "Tokyo," off their debut album "3 Days off The Deep End," which is produced entirely by SMKA. The album brings nothing short of quality, indie hip-hop at its finest.
