like...KNX has been doing his thing for a long second

I just don't whys hes not even cracked Madlib levels of general recognition. He's still in the "music for those in the know" area.

If you look at his discography vs. Dilla it's clear he hasnt had real cross over moments, but it's also clear that hes prolific as fuck. 8/10 of his wikipedia page is releases.


anyway, those kids did the damn thing on that and it made me remember how much I fucking stan for KNX and that he put out major solo album this year.


Edit:

They also covered a Thundercat jam: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7lrAynspwEw&ab_channel=DOMi%26JDBeck

which...fucks with my head because I'm thinking, if they are doing this then they are the children of this era which means Thundercat and cohorts are the establishment.

it's really making me appreciate meek and the fact that he found videos of g herbo and chainz having good pockets is amazing. i'm usually wary of producers putting their beats under verses that were written and recorded to different instrumentals but knx has a good feel for matching the energy and meter of the verse or providing a contrasting instrumental that complements the verse and makes it stand out more. most producers that put their beats (or other producer's beats) under pre-existing verses lack this skill

but Knxwledge was on Fallon with Anderson.Paak during his run for the NxWorries album. I believe they played What More Can I Say.

While I'm not the biggest fan of Jimmy Fallon, that appearance counts as a pretty decent recognition in my eyes.

And for folks that want to check for him and show support, he also streams on Twitch.

I've probably never heard another Axel Leon verse in my life but eggwhites gives me such King Geedorah - Take Me to Your Leader vibes


https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DDG3upgDHuI


throw in an all-time Flex bomb at the end and I'm gold

but that's my second favorite


first is probably predictable if you're familiar with the tape

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TRv7D81urD4&list=RDDDG3upgDHuI&index=3

what's always so fun about these tapes is how they help me see a side of rappers I usually don't care much about, and Uncle Murda's one of those guys that just doesn't always come across on a studio track but this is just pure bliss to me.

the first link was DOMi and JD these two super talented kids and their cover of a Knx song from his most recent album.

The second link was another jam the kids did.

Seeing the cover made me realize I havent thought about dude in a second and that I LOVE his music.

yes, KNX is knxwledge, it's used a lot
