Akeem Brodie was born on June 10, 1982 to Florence Brodie and Stephan Gaskins in Norfolk Virginia. A.Brodie now resides in Jacksonville Florida where he is becoming very well known for making extraordinary music.
As a child he faced many adversities, during that time period he realized that writing was an outlet. He started re-writing famous children stories with a hip-hop twist. He noticed that his peers enjoyed what he was doing. As he started gaining acceptance from them his confidence grew and his writing increased. Akeem began to use music as a way to communicate.
Akeem has always been passionate about his faith and dependence on God to lead his life. He believes that is what makes him the great artist he is today. Along with writing he can play the heck out of the piano, and he plays it by ear. The man is truly gifted. His musical influence and range has no end. Some of his favorite artists are Thelonious Monk, Oscar Peterson, Nas, Fred Hammond, and Tupac Shakur. He has a great love for all genres.
