Aliaune Damala Badara Akon Thiam was born on April 16,

1973, in St. Louis, Missouri, to a Muslim family.

Akon Biography

Akon Biography

His mother is dancer Kine Gueye Thiam (née Gueye),

and his father is percussionist Mor Thiam,

Mor Thiam was born to a Toucouleur family of Quranic

scholars in Kaolack, Senegal.[8][9] Akon spent a

significant part of his childhood in Senegal, which

he described as his “hometown”. Akon learned to play

five instruments, including drums, guitar and djembe.

At age seven, he and his family relocated to Union City,

New Jersey, splitting his time between the

United States and Senegal until settling in Newark.

Growing up in New Jersey, Akon had difficulties getting

along with other children. When he and his older

brother reached high school, his parents left them on

their own in Jersey City and moved the rest of the

family to Atlanta, Georgia. Akon attended William

L. Dickinson High School in Jersey City

Music mogul Devyne Stephens, the president of Upfront

Megatainment, first heard about Akon when rapper

Lil Zane brought him along to Stephens’ rehearsal

hall, a place that at the time saw talents such

as Usher and TLC being developed.

The relationship

between Stephens and Akon began as a friendship

and mentorship, with the young artist regularly

stopping by to ask for advice, with Stephens eventually

signing him to his production company and began

grooming him professionally. The songs Akon

recorded with Stephens were brought to the attention

of Universal’s imprint SRC Records. In an

interview with HitQuarters SRC A&R Jerome “Knobody”

Foster said, “What caught my attention right away

was “Lonely”, and I said, ‘this kid is official –

this is a huge record.” Foster and SRC CEO

Steve Rifkind immediately boarded a private plane

to Atlanta to meet the young artist. Akon knew

of Foster’s work as producer Knobody and so there

was a mutual respect for one another and the pair

hit it off.

Akon’s solo debut album, Trouble, was released on June 29,

2004. It spawned the singles “Locked Up”, “Lonely”,

“Belly Dancer (Bananza)”, “Pot of Gold” and “Ghetto”.

“Locked Up” reached the number 8 position in the U.S.

and number 5 in the UK. “Ghetto” became a radio hit

when it was remixed by DJ Green Lantern to include

verses from rappers 2Pac and The Notorious B.I.G.

The album is a hybrid of Akon’s silky, West African-styled

vocals mixed with East Coast and Southern beats.

Akon Biography

Akon Biography

Most of Akon’s songs begin with the sound of the clank

of a jail cell’s door with him uttering the word “Konvict”.[16]

In 2005, he released the single “Lonely”

(which samples Bobby Vinton’s “Mr. Lonely”).

The song reached the top five on the Billboard

Hot 100, and topped the charts in Australia,

the UK and Germany. His album also climbed to

number one in the UK in April 2005. When music

channel The Box had a top ten weekly chart, which was

calculated by the number of video requests,

Akon’s “Lonely” became the longest-running single

on the top of the chart, spanning over fifteen weeks.

Akon was then featured on two other singles, P-Money’s

“Keep on Callin'” off the album Magic City, and the

other with New Zealand rapper Savage with the single

“Moonshine”, which had become a success in both New

Zealand and Australia, reaching number one in the

New Zealand charts. A year later in 2005, he made

his first critically acclaimed guest appearance

on Young Jeezy’s debut album, Let’s Get It: Thug

Motivation 101, with the song “Soul Survivor”.

Akon Biography

In December the same year, his manager Robert

Montanez was killed in a shooting after a dispute in New Jersey.

In 2006, Akon and Young Jeezy suggested plans

for a collaborative album

Akon started his new record label KonLive Distribution

under Interscope Records. His second album, Konvicted,

was released in November 2006 and debuted at number

two on the Billboard 200, selling 286,000 copies in

its first week. After only six weeks, Konvicted sold

more than one million records in the U.S. The album

was certified platinum after seven weeks, and after

sixteen weeks it was certified double platinum. It

stayed in the top twenty of the Billboard 200 for 28

consecutive weeks and peaked at number two on four

occasions. On November 20, 2007, the RIAA certified

the album ‘triple platinum’ with 3 million units sold in the US.

The album included collaborations with Eminem Snoop Dogg,

and Styles P. The first single “Smack That” (featuring Eminem)

was released in August 2006 and peaked at number two

on the Billboard Hot 100 for five consecutive weeks.

On October 5, 2006, Akon broke a record on the Hot 100,

as he achieved the largest climb in the chart’s

48-year-history with “Smack That” jumping from number

95 to 7. The leap was fueled by its number six

debut on Hot Digital Songs with 67,000 downloads.

The record has since been broken several times.

“Smack That” was nominated for Best Rap/Sung

Collaboration at the 49th Annual Grammy Awards,

but lost to Justin Timberlake and T.I.’s “My Love”.

“I Wanna Love You”, featuring Snoop Dogg, was the

second single released in September, it would go on

to earn Akon his first number-one single on the

Billboard Hot 100, and Snoop’s second. “I Wanna Love

You” topped the U.S. charts for two consecutive weeks.

In January 2007, a third single “Don’t Matter” which

earned him his first solo number one and second

consecutive Hot 100 chart-topper was released.

“Mama Africa” was released as a European single in July 2007,

making it the fourth overall single from the album.

To coincide with the release of the deluxe edition

of the album “Sorry, Blame It on Me” debuted in

August 2007 on the Hot 100 at number seven.

Lyrics

Why have a life like mine?
If you don't take time to enjoy that shit?
(Enjoy that shit enjoy that shit)
"Hey" So why have a life like mine
If you don't take time to enjoy that shit?
(Enjoy that shit) "yeah"

Nigga, I got bitches I got hoes
I got liquor, I got dro
Type of party that nobody want
Nobody else to know
I got shiny, I got glue
Yeah, she like me and my flow
And if you're hoe, walk through my door
Don't ring my line, just check your hoe
Cause I got paid, I hit the door
I got out then I got dough
Then I had all my young boys
Serving posted up on every stoop
I got shooters, I got goons
I got friends and I got foes
I got niggas in the hood
I thought I would never outgrow

(chorus)

So, why have a life like mine
If you don't take time to enjoy that shit?
H(Enjoy that shit, enjoy that shit)
So, why have a life like mine
If you don't take time to enjoy that shit?
(Enjoy that shit)

Nigga, I got 'Raaris, I got boos
Dripping in designer clothes
I got wat too many women
It's like eenie minie moe
I've been taking way too many
Chances fucking with no coat
I've been jumping out the window lately
Yeah Geronimo
Nigga, I got liquor, I got hoes
I got bitches, I got dro
Ain't no telling what this life of mine
Where we're about to go
And I ain't never trust these
Motherfuckers far as I can throw
And I done lost too many homies
I done seen them tag they toe

(chorus)

So, why have a life like mine
If you don't take time to enjoy that shit?
(Enjoy that shit, enjoy that shit)
So, why have a life like mine
If you don't take time to enjoy that shit?
(Enjoy that shit) "yeah"

Nigga, I got bitches, and I got hoes
I got liquor, I got dro
Type of party that nobody
Want nobody else to know
I got shiny, I got glue
Yeah, she like me and my flow
And if you're hoe, walk through my door
Don't ring my line, just check your hoe
Cause I got paid, I hit the door
I got out then I got dough
Then I had all my young boys
Serving posted up on every stoop
See, I keep flipping all the dough
I keep flipping all my dough
I got info on that bankroll
Just in case you wanna know

(chorus)

So, why have a life like mine
If you don't take time to enjoy that shit?
(Enjoy that shit, enjoy that shit)
So, why have a life like mine
If you don't take time to enjoy that shit?
(Enjoy that shit, enjoy that shit)

Enjoy That
