"Kna-Lo Venge, an artist from Queens, New York moved 3000 miles away to Los Angeles, California. Why? Maybe there's something in the water because Kna-Lo has released a single WHAT WOULD I SAY (dedicated to his mother that passed away recently) that immediately sets him apart. It sounds futuristic but makes you reminisce at the same time. The lyrics would make TUPAC proud. The style is flawless and Kna-Lo's sincerity touches the heart, mind and, soul all at the same time (again, something only Tupac could do). As a music enthusiast I'm ecstatic! I understand that he's still recording but the songs that I received completely blew me away. With respect to his contemporaries, Kna-Lo is on another level. Perhaps it's his Queens upbringing, perhaps it's his intelligence, talent, I don't know but his music is revolutionary, edgy and, important. But what truly sets him apart is his range. From "BABY LET ME RAPE YOU" to "NEW" to "WHAT WOULD I SAY" Kna-Lo Venge goes from sex to politics to grief with seamless fluidity. He pulls it all off because he himself embodies all of those things at once. Physically, he looks like a sex symbol, speaking to him he sounds like a scholar and listening to his music is poetry in motion. The beautiful part of it all is that he doesn't take himself too seriously, his sense of humor is shockingly refreshing. How he isn't on a major label boggles the mind, they should be throwing money at him! My advice to music lovers is to get firmly behind this artist and support him completely."
