AKTIVE drips with G-funk bona fides: the producer Sean House favors bundled synth and popping bass lines, while Jay Worthy works with a raunchy, laid-back delivery. Worthy is from Compton, and he recruited Joe Cool, the man behind Snoop's Doggystyle artwork, to do the cover for AKTIVE.
Despite the group's west coast sound, New York's A$AP Yams played an important role in the project. Worthy met the A$AP Mob architect at FADER FORT several years ago, and he cites Yams as an important mentor, willing to give him advice and encouragement when they were needed. Yams' vocals appear on two of the album's 14 tracks, "FAST BLAKK" and "UZA TRIKK."
