“You can have the greatest player in terms of mastering an instrument and you could be yawning your head off when you hear them. So, it’s not what you do, but the way you’re doing it and in the end that’s all that we have.”— - John McLaughlin
The Qknox and Lenny Lenn-produced “Refined Rapper” features Aires Jackson,Haven and Surgon, and is chock-full of Nat King Cole swag. The guys get downright bluesy and elegant on this one. A little sexual, very playful and entirely grown, it’s a nice change to what has become the rap norm. Also, it’s Haven’s verse that encompasses the song’s meaning. Awesome.
In about 12-hours, Qknox crafted four lemonade themed beats just for our local PopLemons. Many may think that this task may be close to impossible — at least to craft four GOOD beats in such a short time frame, butQknox delivered — and delivered well.
