All too often in hip-hop, rappers seek to prove their complexity by forcing some rock sounds into their production, sampling an indie hit from two years ago, or pretending to play guitar on stage. For The Knux, that rock influence has never been a gimmick. Inspired by their L.A. neighborhood, the new EP, called KTWN, is a blend of the duo’s eclectic set of influences, and the guys prove once again that those sources of inspiration can work together strikingly well. Just check out “It’s All Gonna Fall.”
