K.A.A.N. – Uncommon Knowledge
- US - Original
- Hip Hop / Rap
This vinyl debut entitled Uncommon Knowledge on Redefinition Records adds another notch to his belt, in that K.A.A.N. had the honor of working exclusively with legendary music producer K-Def (Real Live, LL Cool J, Ghostface, Diddy) for an entire EP. Connecting the dots to K-Def's opus, 1993's "Chief Rocka" (by Lords of the Underground), a personal favorite of the young rapper, was the icing on the cake while collaborating (he realized the man he was working with produced one of his favorite songs from his youth). K-Def felt equally humbled to once again work with emerging talent, especially when considering K.A.A.N.'s unique, shock-and-awe approach to song structure and lyrical composition, as well as his appreciation for 90's production. While he's far from a simple throwback revivalist, and his catalog to date shows him effortlessly experimenting with various and emerging production styles, K.A.A.N. admits he holds a "soft spot for the 90's and boom bap." Listening to him rhyme may remind an experienced hip hop head of rap's greats and while K.A.A.N. respectfully gives credit where due when speaking of his influential mc's, he attributes just as much of his inspiration to his fandom and study of artists from other genres including Nirvana and Johnny Cash. The old saying goes, "Knowledge is Power", yet for such a popular catchphrase, common sense is still arguably uncommon. Leave it up to K.A.A.N. to take intelligence from rarity to readily available for the masses.
