The Knux... Brotherly love comin' straight outta n'arlens

Master P...Juvenile...Weezy F... New Orleans has offered up some serious talent in the hip-hop game, and looks like 'The Big Easy' aint quite done yet. The Knux is composed of brothers Kentrell "Krispy Kream" Lindsey and Alvin "Rah Almillio" Lindsey. Born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, but displaced due to Katrina, the brothers moved to LA. They’re best known for their tracks Cappuccino, Bang! Bang!, and F!re, from their debut album, Remind me in 3 Days... Climbin onto the music scene in 07, they have flown under the radar, but this may be due to the fact that they don’t do mixtapes, and don’t collaborate with whoever’s hot this hour. Renowned for their intense live shows, the self proclaimed 'knuckleheads' spent the last two years rocking every festival they could joining the likes of Common, Q-Tip, The Roots, Nas, Lupe Fiasco, DJ AM and Travis Barker... among many others. Joined by well-known club DJ Andrew Bagg, it’s hard not to get sucked into the filthy keyboard riffs, raw as fuck drums, mangled loops, and the straight lyrical flow that is 'The Knux'. Can't help but get an Cool Kids vibe from the beats with a touch of Andre 3K on the lyricism... but all in all, these two skinny jeaned bros have a style that's in their own class. The dynamic duo has laid down some serious sleepers, the latest being "Fuck You" a leak off their sophomore album. So my advice is simple, WAKE UP... The Knux ARE the straight goods.

'Fuck You'
