Vincenzo da Via Anfossi is an Italian rapper,[1] born and living in Milan, Italy.


Via Anfossi started his career in the latter half of the 1980s. At first, he joined the band 16K, as an accountant, with the nickname Aken. In 1998, he joined Armata 16, a band formed by former members of 16K. His first effort as a rapper/singer came on the album Spiriti Liberi, released by Armata 16 in 1999. After Armata 16 broke up, Via Anfossi became part of the Dogo Gang.

After various collaborations, both with members of the Dogo Gang and others, Via Anfossi published his first solo album as a singer: L'ora D'aria, which was distributed by Universal and produced by Don Joe and Deleterio, both members of the Dogo Gang.

In 2008-09, Via Anfossi toured with Marracash. With Marracash he was nominated for Best Italian Act at the MTV European Music Awards, alongside nominees Finley, Baustelle, Fabri Fibra, and Sonohra.
