“... equal parts slow-burning soul and dazed funk, is emblematic of the producer's style: You can hear conspicuous traces of Madlib and J Dilla, but an individual sound emanates through their influence.” – Pitchfork
“Prolific wouldn’t begin to describe Los Angeles-based producer Knxwledge. Not only has he thrived as one-half of the supergroup NxWorries with GRAMMY Award winning artist Anderson .Paak, but he’s steadily been releasing projects via his SoundCloud and Bandcamp archives.” – Hypebeast
**Knxwledge** (pronounced “knowledge”) is a Hip-hop beat maker/producer raised in central New Jersey and Philadelphia, now relocated in Los Angeles. Standing out in a sea of producers rising from the L.A. beat scene, the prolific artist and record collector produces his sound by creating a pastiche of soul, jazz and hip-hop that melts together in a style uniquely his own. He has produced for hip-hop powerhouse Kendrick Lamar on “To Pimp a Butterfly” (produced ‘Momma’), which went platinum and was awarded for US Grammy “Best of Rap Album” in 2015. He’s also produced for other MCs/Singers such as Joey Bada$$, Earl Sweatshirt, Action Bronson, Omarion and Ghostface Killah, and has over 80 releases of remix and beat tape collections on his Bandcamp.

The first single ‘Suede’ gained much attention, of which piqued the interest of Dr. Dre. In 2016, NxWorries released their full-length album “Yes Lawd!”, which received critical acclaim. In 2017, they released a self-remix album of NxWorries “Yes Lawd! Remixes”. After keep releasing beat-tape albums on Bandcamp in 2018-2019, he will finally release his second official album from Stones Throw in Mar 2020.
He formed the duo with Anderson .Paak called NxWorries. Their single ‘Suede’ became a viral hit, vaulting the singer to R&B stardom, and their album Yes Lawd! followed through on that song's immense promise.
