Should something come of it, the record would be the first reunion of Knxw and .Paak since their 2016 breakout album, Yes Lawd!, and the follow-up remix project that arrived in 2017. For Roc and the Stone Throw producer, it would mark a follow-up to their criminally short three-track project, dntaskmefrshit., released in mid-2018 on the phantom looper’s Bandcamp page.
The session, and whatever it bears, arrive on the heels of a big year for all parties involved. Over the last two years, Roc, along with the Griselda team, has ushered in a new era of grittier-than-thou New York rap with seemingly unanimous praise of their group and solo outings. Meanwhile, .Paak’s latest album, Ventura, earned him the first Grammy of his career for “Best R&B Album” at this year’s ceremony. And Knxw is well beyond the century mark in one of music’s longest streaks of stellar solo releases. He’s also readying a follow-up to his debut studio album, Hud Dreems.
