Today, Kirk Knight shares his new track and video “Run It Back (Freestyle)” via Pro Era Records/RED MUSIC. The new release sees the prodigious New York producer, songwriter and rapper stepping into the spotlight, showcasing lyrical prowess and crafty songwriting for a solo track. The single is accompanied by a quintessentially New York video including cameos from Pro Era’s Joey Bada$$ and Meechy Darko of the Flatbush Zombies.
In addition to the new track, Kirk is announcing his new album IIWII (It Is What It Is), coming this fall. The new album follows his critically-acclaimed joint-EP with fellow Pro Era member Nyck Caution released last year Nyck @ Knight that released last year as well as production for A$AP Ferg on his now double-platinum hit “Plain Jane.” Apart from music, Kirk is also establishing himself as a talented young actor, appearing in Patti Cake$, a film about a white woman from New Jersey with rap aspirations that became a Sundance festival darling and earned rave reviews.
First breaking into mainstream consciousness as a member of Pro Era, Kirk became one of the backbones of the collective’s sound, crafting tracks for rappers within the Pro Era circle and beyond. Meanwhile, Kirk was steadily honing his craft, putting out his solo debut Late Knight Special in 2015, just before his 20th birthday. Now 22, Kirk has refined his music and burrowed down to its very core to build a lush, new sound that’s solely his. With IIWII, Kirk is displaying a newfound perspective, cutting through right to the essence of himself as an artist while fluently navigating the trends that are gripping both the charts and the streets right now.
