Kno (of CunninLynguists) ft. Thee Tom Hardy & Tunji - Rhythm of the Rain

Posted 5 years ago
Featuring:
Producer:
Kno
Album:
Death Is Silent

Ever laid in bed during a storm, listening to the Rhythm of the Rain as it hit your rooftop, and said to yourself, “Damn, this would make a dope hip-hop record!”? I haven’t – but, then again, I’m not a nationally-renowned rapper/producer. Kno, on the other hand is and, for his latest single, the Cunninlynguists member builds a dope (if dark) cut on that very concept. Kicking things off with the obligatory rainfall sound effect, Kno goes on to flip an oldie I wasn’t able to identify into a pensive backdrop for rhymes on the topic of love and loss. Providing moral support to the Southern mainstay are Inverse emcee Tunji, who spends his middle bars reminiscing about the day his father walked out on the family, and North Carolina’s Tom Hardy, who adapts his pun-a-minute style to the more serious theme with considerable success (OK, the line “It’s a sh*tstorm, shoulda worn a raincoat,” is a little silly.). Like what you’re hearing? Judging by the project’s title, you can expect plenty more brooding bangers on Kno’s Death Is Silent LP, set to arrive on store shelves October 15.
