On Yes Lawd!, .Paak – who calls the album “my best work” – plays theatrically brash version of himself who sings like a ’70s superstar and talks shit like a stone cold player. But the performance is seeded with details from his life, which has seen a fair share of struggle and hard-won triumph. Meanwhile, Knx weaves a tapestry of sampled bits and live fragments-bass, brass and violin-that smooths everything over, reminding us that despite whatever struggle it took to get here… well, you already know the name: NxWorries.
Knx, aka Knxwledge, is a beat maker raised in central New Jersey and Philadelphia, now dialing-it-in at home in Los Angeles. Anthology is the essential instrumentals curation from the forty some-odd Knx Bandcamp releases 2009-2013. At fifty three tracks, Anthology is now available as a limited collector’s edition 2LP.
