Knowledge on SoundClick
More than just a Maryland Hip Hop artist, Knowledge is becoming the voice of those victim to Government's lies and deceit. A revolutionary and intense underground rapper, with the throne in his sights. While his lyrics are controversial, they are meaningful ideas and circumstances based on FACT. They are lyrics lived, or seen, through the eyes of Knowledge himself, a young but seasoned veteran, raised by the streets.
Knowledge has been reaching out to the world after his most recent release, Left 4 Dead, which has continued to grow increasingly more popular over the past few months. This has kept him quite busy, along with the anticipation of his next release, God of War II, growing steadily by the day. With a constant mix of street Hip Hop, and vivid references to global struggle, he proves that world politics and politics within hiphop music are almost one in the same. As time passes, expect to hear his striking lyrics on an even more street influenced level, which often forces him to show his hate for authority and governing bodies, while showcasing his lyrical versatility on the mic.
Since a child, his rebellion and disregard for authority was ever so present, resulting in institutions and detention-style schools since grade 1. Born in Maryland, he was forced to move from state to state many times while growing up, due to expulsion from school, or legal problems resulting from his parents' criminal activities. Whatever the reason, he would quickly adapt to every new area, and always showed signs of becoming a strong leader. Finally, however, the back and forth would come to a halt as he became a young adult. Upon the completion of various boot camps and detention centers in Central Pennsylvania, Knowledge found himself once again returning to Maryland for one last time. It was around this time when the hustle really started to set in, and his street credit and respect became impossible to ignore. There is no room for self glorification, but those who know him, and know what went on for the next 10 years, will surely cosign the fact that he did the damn thing, and kept it real through thick & thin, no matter what.
Fast forward to 2006, when involvement in an undercover sting operation set him back a few years, and put life on pause... or so it would seem. Instead of disappearing from the streets and choosing to do nothing with himself during the last 3 years of probation and drug court, he decided to pursue a dormant hobby and passion that had been hibernating over the past 10 years of 'life in the fast lane,' Hip Hop. Always a part of his life, in one form or another, Hip Hop would prove to be the savior of a soul which had become lost in a sea of hate and regret. By focusing all of his energy into the lyrics in his music, he has found a way to share his real life experiences with others, young and old, in hopes that they may finally understand what he has been through, and still going through, in this corrupted monster that we all refer to as the Justice System.
Although you may not like every word you hear, rest assured, you will respect every syllable that pounds out of your speakers. With a confidence that is unmatched, and a delivery that cannot be confused with any other, Knowledge will grab the attention of the listener from the second he starts, until long after his final song goes silent. Though he remains an underground emcee, and out of the bright light of the mainstream, he is surely getting his point across to the limitless underground fan base of truth-seekers, and soldier supporters who both believe in what he represents, and support his cause until the end. That which he represents, is TRUTH, live in the flesh, and his cause is, inevitably, HIP HOP and the messages that come with it. Knowledge is Hip Hop, more than just a name, more than just a phrase, this is a f***ing movement! So you either move along with us, or you get moved on for trying to stop it...
