Product Details

Summary

Death Is Silent, the solo debut from CunninLynguists' producer and emcee Kno, is set to be released on October 12th 2010. While handling nearly all of CL's production since the group's inception in 2001, his emceeing has more recently taken a backseat to his beats - and it has shown. Fueled by Kno's lush production techniques, A Piece of Strange currently ranks as the #8 release of 2005 (and the only hip-hop release in the Top 30) at high traffic web community RateYourMusic.com, Dirty Acres was awarded "Album Of The Year" honors by UndergroundHipHop.com for 2007 and both of 2009's compilation releases, Strange Journey Volume One and Two, were given "Top Ten Albums" honors at 2DopeBoyz.com.

After amassing only 4 verses over the CunninLynguists' last four releases, the Atlanta-based artist is set to step out from behind the boards on Death Is Silent, both producing the entirety of the record and handling the majority of the vocals. The record's concept involves the inevitability of death and its impact on love, life, family and friends. The artwork was realized by Argentinian visual artist Diego Fernandez.

Kno will still see plenty of activity on the production side of things, as the next 6 months will see the release of Oneirology, CunninLynguists' newest studio album in 3 years, Chico and The Man, the long-awaited concept album with fellow QN5 Music artist and longtime friend Tonedeff as well as MacheteVision, a joint project with emcee Marq Spekt.

While all of these releases will be produced entirely by Kno, his production will also be featured on upcoming projects by Freddie Gibbs, 9th Wonder signee Tom Hardy as well as the album Niggaz With Latitude, a group project from CL's own Deacon The Villain and Sheisty Khrist.

Comment: Even though Kno is greedy with citing samples, this album has that emo feeling to it that will leave goose bumps on you while listening. This is a whole nother sub culture of hip hop that can take your mind for a lovely trip through Kno's gripping beats and matured lyrics, by members of cunninlynguists. Amazing album.

Comment: This album is a masterpiece of production from Kno. His lyrics are decent but there are amazing verses from the guest artists specifically Tunji and Deacon. The album has a homogeneous darkness and clear theme that ties all the songs together, which are all good, listen to the whole thing through. Buy it and support the man.

Comment: This album is just amazing. Kno has it all. He understands music like no other. It was worth waiting all that time to finally hear him on the mic again. He definitly had alot to say. The production is flawless as usual. The beat on "come die with me" just makes you gasp for air. And Oneirology is just around the corner! Best fall ever thanks to Kno & CL!
