Yes, it isn't just Oneirology or Chico & The Man that we'll be hearing from Kno this year, he's already released a few singles from his upcoming concept project with Jersey emcee MarQ Spekt. These tracks are attached below, as is a synopsis of the concept, which admittedly sounds very outlandish (to say the least!).


From the rubble of a post-apocalyptic Hip-Hop landscape littered with bloodied man purses & tattered skinny jeans, two men emerge as the law in a lawless land. Armed only with battle-worn machetes and gritty instrumentals, MarQ Spekt & Kno of CunninLynguists will descend upon The Temple of Auto-Tune on October 25th to lead one final push in eliminating the remaining scourge and returning high-minded filth to its rightful place in the Pantheon of Rap.

Flanked by like-minded mercenaries such as Action Bronson, Deacon The Villain, Meyhem Lauren and more, these guardians of grime will prove once and for all that nobody is safe — especially if they borrow their girlfriend’s pants.

The only thing that confuses me with this is 'From the temple of Auto-Tune.' I hope this doesn't mean Kno's experimenting :/ But either way, will be great to hear from him!

Here's the first single that was leaked:

2nd leak (much better than the first, IMO):


*EDIT* Also, sounds like this will be a digital release ONLY at first, followed by a physical release with some extras at a later date!
