We've definitely slapped some "WRITE AKON BLOG!" notes around the desk the past few weeks, reminding us to post about the snippet of his wildly poppy Gwen Stefani team-up, the Amadou and Miriam remix he quietly did over the summer (did y'all not know about that either?), about the recently leaked collabs from Bone Thugs, Styles P and Juvenile's new albums...there was even gonna be a post discussing how Akon's song with Papoose is the first song in history where Pap doesn't sound completely like a hoarse teenager. Ok, that one was really just an excuse to crack wise about how Kay Slay needs to stop yelling at Green Lantern and maybe invest in a good microphone - but we digress. The point is, Akon is doing the damn thing! Check the clip above from his documentary DVD (to be included with copies of his forthcoming second LP) and check more FADER blog Konvict-ery here and here. With dude doing nine songs a day you know there's more to come.
