Single You Out: Silent Knight – Walking

Now this is a good comination:   The Audible Doctor and Silent Knight have proved unbelievable chemistry.  You can reference their number one track about four years back, Stayin’ Busy.  The Audible Doctor fires up the boom bap, the organ, and the proper intermingling of a soulful, almost sorrowful, vocal sample.   There’s also just something about the way Silent Knight relates is life and ideas that just resonates with me.  He’s trying to make money along with making art.  This song is going to stick with me for a while.

His new project, Weaknd, is due out soon.

Single You Out: Silent Knight – Ballot Of The Wallet (prod. by Madwreck)

The man who dropped the Single Of The Year in 2011 is back at it in the latter part of this year, prepping his next project, Busy Is My Best Friend II.  This song is the anti-thesis of C.R.E.A.M. in the observations of Silent Knight.   Can he get us to drop that ‘cash first’ mentality?  Well, I can tell you the song is fresh, contains dope lyricism, and a well intentioned message.  Check it…
