Rapper/Songwriter/Producer Knox who is signed to his own imprint, 77 Records, an independent label based in Cape Town.
This is the first single from his upcoming EP titled ‘White Sheep Black Goat’, it’s an infectious club anthem that fuzes US Hip-Hop with African Hip-Hop to transcend culture and get everyone moving. The versatile raps are complimented by airy synths, and bouncing drums thanks to South African Super-producer Peter Muhofa. VMG had a brief moment with Knox to find out what’s new his way.
1) What keeps you motivate when it comes to your music?
Leaving a legacy. I don’t want to die and be forgotten, I want to be heard even after I’m gone.
2) When you think of “Vintage Media Group”, what comes to mind?
Home of the new school.
3) Being that you are from Windhoek, what is the state of Hip-Hop there? How would you titled your style of music?
Windhoek – Cape Town – London, those are my three bases, but Windhoek is where my heart is. Hip-Hop is big in Namibia, it is ingrained in the youth culture. I’d like to think I make Hip-Hop, but I experiment with so many different sounds. I always look to transcend genres.
4) With your most recent music single “K.O.N.A.M” is Crazy NICE, I Really Like It… can you give us some details on how you came up with that song?
The instrumental for K.O.N.A.M was sitting on my laptop for two years before I found something suitable for it. The concept came to me whilst watching one of those festival after-movie clips on YouTube; I imagined myself performing to the crowd and the chorus just hit me like an epiphany.

7) Any Last Remarks?
