From a troubled childhood to a global sensation
Born in St. Louis and raised between Senegal and the States, Akon grew up in a family of performers and musicians, sparking his own early interest in music. However, it wasn't until he suffered through a jail sentence that he began to respect the musical drive within him. In 2004 Akon's debut album, Trouble, came out, an instant hit with its fusion of American hip hop and Senegalese rhythms. His sophomore effort, Konvicted, hit triple platinum status and snagged him three Grammy nods. It opened the door for Akon to collaborate with other superstar artists, including Eminem, Snoop Dogg, and Style P. Akon was working with Michael Jackson on a song called "Hold My Han" when Jackson tragically passed away. Akon's music has continued to push the envelope of popular hip hop, and he has globalized rap by singing in Tamil, Hindi, and Spanish.
