What do you get when you mix Nyck Caution’s lyrical wizardry with Kirk Knight’s hard-hitting productions? The dream team that is Nyck @ Knight. While both New York City rappers have seen success with their own solo endeavors, the new collab puts the raw talents of both artists on display like never before, as evidenced on tracks like “Off The Wall” and “All Night”. One listen through their recently released project and it’s clear—this is a partnership that gels, no explanation needed.
Since Nyck @ Knight hit the web last month, the project's eight tracks have already amassed over 1.3M streams on Spotify. The only song that sees any features is “Audiopium”, which has contributions from other Pro Era members including Rokamouth, Dirty Sanchez, Dessy Hinds, Aaron Rose, CJ Fly, and Joey Bada$$.
To promote their self-titled release, the "Dial Up" creators hit the road for a 10-date run, which will bring them to cities across the US from Boston to Minneapolis. Next on their agenda? A performance tonight at S.O.B's in New York City.
