Knxwledge’s dog Koko even makes a special appearance.

Fresh off the announcement of his second studio album 1998, Knxwledge has released the video for “Don’t Be Afraid” and “[bc] tm_s not promised.” Belgian Illustrator/animator Robin Velghe, also known as Rhymezlikedimez, handles the animation. Stream the video above.

The Jersey-born producer is just the latest high-profile client for Velghe. Over the years, he crafted multiple video treatments for names like Playboi Carti and Lil Uzi Vert. Additionally, the illustrator has worked with brands like Nike and Apple Music. His track record thus far is nothing short of impressive.
