The Knux - Bang Bang

Album:
Remind Me In 3 Days

For as long as the city of New Orleans has been rife with criminal activity, hometown rappers have documented it through their music (see No Limit and Cash Money empires).  A new era in hip-hop, however, has brought a new sound from the Crescent City and a talented duo is ready to tell their story.  Unlike the Lil’ Waynes or Master P’s, The Knux have chosen to draw their influences from the city’s blues heritage and showcase on Bang Bang.  In addition to a gravely-voiced chorus, Rah Almillio and Krispy Kream add some upbeat electric guitar-drum production (sounds like they’ve been drinking plenty of Cappuccino).  Their Interscope debut, Remind Me In 3 Days, is expected to be released this fall.
