Pro Era Family Tree: Meet The Brooklyn Hip-Hop Crew Spearheaded By Joey Bada$$

kirk knight

Name: Kirk Knight
Twitter: @KirkKnight
Age: I don’t believe in age
Role: Rapper/Producer
Bio: Initially billed as one of the group’s main producers, he’s experiencing something of a coming out party now that Summer Knights has dropped, both behind the boards and on the mic. Since the crew dropped the project’s third single, “Amethyst Rockstar,” the buzz has been building about Knight’s verse, while his production on opening track “Alowha” as well as “Right On Time” and the STEEZ tribute track “#LongLiveSteelo” showed a progression from his earlier work. While his beats may be laid back, his vocals—much like Joey’s—have gotten tougher since his first verses on 1999. Knight’s recently dropped a pair of singles in “Dreams” and “Early Morning Hiatus” which bode well for his future endeavors as well.
Best Lyric: “How is Hip-Hop dead? Im still makin’ a killin’
Banana clip peelin’ n ho’s I’m still stealin’
This is not for the soda pop niggas
Take me to the leader of the new school or the block dealas”
—”Amethyst Rockstar”
Best Beat: Joey Bada$$, “Alowha”
# Of Third Eye Mentions: 8
