Knowledge the Pirate is ready for the spotlight.
Mainly known around these parts for his work with Roc Marciano, the “first gangster to rap over Neptunes beats” has also worked with the likes of Teddy Riley, Willy Smith, Alchemist, and others. And today, he’s come through with his debut solo album, Flintlock.
Released only through his website, fans will have to cop to listen. But if you’re more of a “try before you buy” type, Knowledge has released a music video for the Mushroom Jesus-laced “Long Gaze.”
“The ‘Long Gaze’ video is that hardcore, underground New York, gangster and a gentlemen shit,” he told Complex.
