Editors’ Notes One of Japan's fiercest hip-hop talents works under the names AK-69, Kalassy Nikoff and REDSTA. But whatever the rapper's guise, a brash delivery and pulverising lyrics scattered across thumping beats—often courtesy of close collaborator DJ RYOW—are the norm. Flashy and symphonic big-baller odes like "Kingpin" and "Streets" show how the rapper's magic extends beyond his hits.
