A rapper and producer from New York, New York -- specifically the borough of Brooklyn -- Kirk Knight, born Kirlan Labarrie, starting rhyming and working on music during his early teenage years.
An encounter with Joey Bada$$ led to membership in Pro Era. Along with output as part of that crew, Knight amassed collaborations with Statik Selektah, Lee Bannon, and Smoke DZA, as well as with Bada$$, whose "Big Dusty" was something of a breakthrough for the artist. In October 2015, after he signed with Cinematic Music Group, he released Late Night Special, for which he either produced or co-produced each cut. Featuring appearances from Bada$$, Noname Gypsy, and Thundercat, the album debuted at number 24 on Billboard's rap chart. ~ Andy Kellman, Rovi
