I didn't want to but the devil made me do it...

Yo, I wanted to let Catch have his shine on today but I had to get in and get my 2 cents in on The Knux before I go to bed and it's all lost in a myriad of crazy dreams. I first heard these dude when the dope boyz released their "Cadillac Edition" mixtape which included The Knux record Amazing. Since then I have read and eagerly awaited this album. I couldn't agree more. I expected a good album, but not this good. You know, how an album can exceed your expectations...well this one did, from start to finish.
I am not one to compare artists, like people are with Asher Roth and Eminem, but I like when I can listen to an album and it brings back albums from the past that I haven't heard in a minute. I like the beats, and the synth, but I like it when lyrics and flow can take me back. For me, they took a pinch of OutKast, a sprinkle of Das Efx, and a dash of Timbaland and Magoo and stirred that shit up into their own batter...The Knux. "Parking Lot" took me back to the days of Magoo's not so subtle sexual inuendos, "Cappuccino" brings back some old OutKast "Southernplaylisticadillacmuzik",  and the "diggity, diggity" of Das Efx.

I can't even front, I'm geeked on this album, had me nodding my head all the way home. Peep the video and the link below to "Amazing" or head on over to the dope boyz and download the mixtape here. Alright, time for bed...catch y'all on the flipside. Peace.
