Raury – “Forbidden Knowledge” f. Big K.R.I.T.

blame it on Meka October 7, 2015

After the blitzkrieg of music in September 2015, the Fall season is ready to yield perfect tunes for the cooler temperatures and powerful music (word to the Diplomats). One of the more anticipated albums of the season is definitely the debut album from Atlanta eclectic Raury, All We Need. I actually had the chance to listen to the album a few weeks ago, and the project is a concept-driven extension of his 2014 debut Indigo Child. One of the clear standouts, however, was the Big K.R.I.T.-guested track “Forbidden Knowledge.”

Track three from All We Need has now been liberated for the world to hear. Relying solely on his André 3000-inflected rap flow, Raury and K.R.I.T. wax poetics about – according to Raury – “the nature of man, and what we, as mankind, have done with knowledge that we probably shouldn’t have had.” The track’s mood music-type feel is indicative of the overall theme of All We Need, which fans of the young upstart will both appreciate and enjoy. Listen to the Malay-produced track below.
