AK-69、度肝を抜く演出の全国ZEPPツアーDVDが遂に発売!

最新アルバム『The Independent King』がオリコン総合デイリーチャートで自己最高記録である2位獲得、収録曲「START IT AGAIN」が2013年レコチョク上半期のジャンル別ランキングで1位を獲得したAK-69。現在制作拠点を置くNYでも、日本人ラッパーとして初めて、全世界に影響力を持つラジオ・ステーション「HOT97」(ホット・ナインティーセブン)主催イベントに出演したり、インタビューを受けたりと着実に名を広めているようだ。


今年初めに行った全国5都市6公演のZEPPツアー「THE INDEPENDENT KING TOUR 2013」は、同規模における規格外のステージセットや演出を行い、全国屈指の一流ダンサーとともに、究極のヒップホップエンターテイメントを表現することに成功。この模様を余すことなくパッケージした2枚組DVD『THE MOVIE~Road to The Independent King~』が7月10日(水)、遂に発売される。迫力のライブ映像はもちろんのこと、DISC2にはAK-69本人が制作の裏に潜むドラマや想いを語った長尺ドキュメンタリー映像とMV5曲も収録されており、合計収録3時間オーバーの大ボリューム作品となっている。


また、今作のリリースに合わせ行われるプロモーションにも注目したい。AK-69の地元・名古屋では、リリース日にダンサーや相方のDJ RYOWが登場する一夜限りのスペシャル・イベントが開催。そして、AK-69の作品、イベント会場、SNS内(Twitter・Facebook等)、さらに全国各地に隠された暗号(Code)を解読(crAcK)していくファン参加型サイト「crAcK ~The Code Of AK-69~」がオープン。さらには、AK-69の過去作品のみならず、当時の雑誌のインタビュー記事やライブ情報、ファッションなどを網羅したヒストリーサイト「-THE HISTORY- ROAD TO THE INDEPENDENT KING」がオープンし、現在は第一章"REDSTA"(2004年~2007年まで)がアップされている。

ファンとの密接な繋がりをこれまでも大切にしてきたAK-69だが、今作ではこれまでにないファン参加型のプロモーションがファンの間で話題になっている。アメリカと国内、ワールドワイドに制作/ライブ活動を続ける "孤高のHIPHOP KING"AK-69の今後の動きに要注目だ。
