London rapper Akala linked up with Charlie Sloth on his weekly Monday night hip hop show on BBC Radio 1 for his second “Fire In The Booth” freestyle. In this 14-minute freestyle, Akala first puts a hurting over the beat for Nas‘ “What Goes Around,” showcasing a variety of flows and giving us his standard schooling whilst adding some personal touches by taking it back to his childhood; then he mellows out and performs the meaningful track “Absolute Power” from his upcoming Knowledge Is Power Vol 1 mixtape.

Check it out after the jump.

We caught up with Akala in anticipation of the forthcoming tape, so say locked to SoulCulture to find out what he had to say. Knowledge Is Power Vol. 1 drops May 28th.
