He may be only in his mid twenties, but knxwledge. has released over more than 60 projects in his lifetime. Even after collaborating with Kendrick Lamar for his new album ‘To Pimp a Butterfly’, knxwledge. still can’t get enough of sharing his amazing talents. Hud Dreems is a 26-tracked instrumental album due to release on the revolutionary indie label Stones Throw Records on May 5th. Talking about dreams coming true..
Knxwledge pops more beat tapes than Jiffy pops popcorn. This is the second beat tape within a month and a half. Quantity comes in quality when it comes to this guy though. Indulge yourself in dense R&B flips, packed with old skool Hip-Hop lyrics and a touch of quiet storm vibes. Cop that, or nah?
The fifth installment of the Wrap.Taypes series of Knxwledge. (the beat maker who never sleeps). These tapes consist of remixes of primarily popular rap songs. Although Knxwledge. delivers a high quantity of releases, they never lack of quality. It would be cool to see him collaborate with a rapper. Maybe something to expect in the future.
The HIT + RUN crew from Southern California was established in 2005 and has spread around the globe. From Los Angeles to London to Tel Aviv, they are known for their live screen printing events. The imprint is also notorious for their 7″ singles, eps & full length album releases on vinyl and cassette. Especially the H+R compilation series “777” and “ROAD KILL” are a very welcome output. On the first of September the fourth volume of their “ROAD KILL” serie will see the light of day. Artist like Cohen Beats, Mono/Poly, Knxwledge, Seven Davis Jr. and others have contributed to this release.
Delicious beats and laidback flows are the two main ingredients for the latest project from Stanley Ipkuss & ewonee thee beatnik. Two ingedients that not everyone knows to produce. The beats from New Yorker Ewonee remind me of the likes of Madlib or Knxwledge. It has that raw lo-fi sound combined with original percussions. Ipkuss, with his introspective state of mind raps, pays tribute to the thriving underground subculture of the Bay Area, California. It’s a East coast-West coast collaboration that will make you nod your head for days.
They treat you with an hour long mix with music by Devonwho, Dibia$e, Knxwledge., Mndsgn, Prof. Logik and others. And like thats not enough, they made a very cool video to go with it. This is just the first volume. So if you like it, be sure to follow GodsConnect. Check out the video mixette here below, and download the audio mix here.
