Another breath of fresh air in hip hop

Wu Gambino,

I really discovered The Knux after they began opening for Common. I later found out they were from New Orleans which made me excited. As a Louisiana native, we get a bad rep for some of the artists that come out from here. People usually associate LA with most of what comes on the radio and not the real talent from the state like Young Bleed, Mac, Fiend, But the Knux are a great new group who really deliver with this album. It's good to see LA has new emcees on the scene like the Knux, Jay Electronica and J. Blitz to show that LA still has emerging talent in hip hop. 18 great tracks w/ solid production & Krispy Kream and Rah Al Millio both with great performances. Definitely an album true hip hop fans need to hear.

Good / Fresh hiphop

Denotes,

Get this, its fresh!

About The Knux

Comprising brothers Kentrell "Krispy" Lindsey (formerly Krispy Kream) and Alvin "Joey" Lindsey (formerly Rah Al Millio), the Knux are an alternative rap duo who are musicians as well as singer/rappers. Born in New Orleans yet displaced by Hurricane Katrina, the musically schooled brothers began creating a stir nationally in late 2007 when they were the opening act for Common on his Finding Forever tour. Dressed in throwback Adidas zip-ups, fat gold chains, and altogether atypical contemporary rap attire, the Knux performed with a live band (the Symetrics) and DJ (DJ Cobra) and frequently left crowds puzzled and occasionally booing. Once the Knux were signed to Interscope Records, however, attitudes changed as tastemakers began taking note -- first and foremost bloggers, who were quick to champion the duo and point out their affiliation with rap industry power broker Paul Rosenberg, the manager of Eminem. The brothers' social media pages in turn began getting heavy traffic in lieu of any commercially available music. "Cappuccino" was the first Knux song officially released by Interscope, beginning with an appearance in an episode of the fourth season of the HBO show Entourage; a video for the song was subsequently filmed. A debut album, Remind Me in 3 Days..., was released in 2008. In 2011, the duo returned with their sophomore album, the slickly produced Eraser, which featured guests Natalia Kills, Kid Cudi, and Blake Miller. The KTWN EP -- named after Los Angeles' Koreatown -- was released the following year. Their third effort, Eleven, arrived in 2015. ~ Jason Birchmeier
