    Wow... it seems like he could be a one man show here... rap, sing, play all the instruments, and dance. Maybe not at the same time, but... maybe he could try

    I will admit that the dreads irk me, but I could see him being a good performer.

    Bored, you can check out performance videos of some of the contestants on the official site. Akil's was very good.

    I wouldn't have thought much before seeing his performance video. Has a good shot at winning

    After the first episode, he's my favorite. He has a lot of charisma and talent and the ability to critique himself.

    I wasn't impressed. Without the guitar and just listening to his vocals, he can not sing. He needs the guitar to keep him in tune.

    I don't think singing is his main thing though. Just part of the plethora of things that he does (rap, poetry/spoken word, singing, guitar). He's probably aware of his limitations as a singer.

    I like this cat a lot though. I put him #2 behind Jessica on my list thus far. He's multi-talented, seems to be very creative, and definitely the most original of the 13.

    I didn't appreciate Akil until I saw how effortlessly he made YelaDog look like a poseur on the last episode. Unintentionally, of course, but still.
