Over the last few years Knxwledge has made it nearly impossible to keep up with his output. Prolific is an understatement and Knxw’s a man of few words. In 2016 alone, Knxw’s released three beat tapes on his endless Bandcamp vortex and an EP as NxWorries with 2016 MVP Anderson .Paak. But while we wait for the full reveal of the .Paak x Knxw connection, Stones Throw is refocusing our gaze to his most polished release to date, the 2015 label debut Hud Dreems.
The Pasadena label has reissued the album on vinyl with a very special “side D” that features 14 bonus tracks that, while short, should hold you over until NxWorries resurfaces with what .Paak claimed to be a “masterpiece.” You can add the album to your bookshelf by hitting the Stones Throw shop today. But if you’re looking to hear new Knxwledge without the $23 price tag, we encourage you, as we have time and time again, to visit his Bandcamp page and dive deep into the void. Recently he joined Earl Sweatshirt on the rapper’s Stay Inside program for RBMA Radio, spinning soul, funk and jazz rarities, which is certainly worth revisiting.
