Album:
School of the Hard Knuxx EP

Fred Knuxx may have had to learn how to deal with life’s slings and arrows the hard way, but you don’t have to. Simply take a listen to newly-released street single and EP title track School of the Hard Knuxx and learn from a master. This slow-rolling cut, backed by the organ/piano-loop boardwork of X-Plosive (who grabs a vocal sample from Hova‘s Hard Knock Life for the hook), finds the rapper who brought us Booth-exclusive freestyle Microphone spitting his condensed life story, chronicling the struggles that made him the man he is today as well as offering his perspective on such topics as tattoos (he doesn’t have any) and drugs (he doesn’t partake). On the back end, he sums it up better than I ever could: “All in all, I wouldn’t trade my experience / It made me stronger and wiser / Neighbors thought I wouldn’t amount to nothing / Well, I’m glad I surprised ya… Stack up the cash, add up the math, School of the Hard Knuxx, flying colors I passed.” For more of the Delaware native’s hard-won insights, grab a copy of School of Hard Knuxx (the EP) when it drops – you guessed it – April 20.
