Japanese rapper VIKN is putting the land of the rising sun on the map with his debut album CAPITAL. A quick glance at the credits proves VIKN not to be your any du jour in the game, with cover photo by Ricky Powell and production from Statik Selektah, Tha Chill (Compton’s Most Wanted) and B-Money (50 Cent, Jay-Z). CAPITAL will flaunt the fledgling MC’s upfront demeanor in full-length glory, merging stateside rap sensibility with rustic boom-bap from the metropolis of Tokyo. Keep an eye out for CAPITAL to hit selected stores from May 15 onwards. Meanwhile, peep the promo clip above for a taste of what is to come.
