As one of the flagship artists of the indie Hip-Hop outfit Media Darling Records, Know One has mastered the art of live performance. His complicated rhyme patterns and infectious energy have made him a staple in the independent Hip-Hop community in New Orleans. In the last few years Know one has had the honor of sharing the stage with such acts as Galactic, DR. John, Lyrics Born, Gift of Gab, Sage Francis, RJD2, Murs, Scratch of the Roots, the Dakah Hip-Hop Orchestra, and Jurassic 5, just to name a few.
His first solo album, Know One’s Home, Is an introspective, yet soulful, exercise in word play and rhythm. With a clever sense of storytelling Know One touches on a wide range of topics throughout these twenty three tracks such as his love for old school hip-hop on “My Back In The Day Song”, the misinterpretation of music and musicians on “Savali...It’s Complicated”, and the mishandling of Hurricane Katrina on “Patchin’ Broken Dreams”. Not wanting to make just another hip-hop album, Know One reached out to his friends in the New Orleans music community in an effort to make an album that reflects his love for the city he calls home.
