Kirk Knight

A rapper and producer from Brooklyn, New York, Kirk Knight started 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$$, whose "Big Dusty" was something of a breakthrough for the artist. In October 2015, after he signed with Cinematic Music Group, he released Late Knight Special for which he either produced or co-produced each cut. Featuring appearances from Bada$$, Noname Gypsy, and Thundercat, the album debuted at number 24 on Billboard's rap chart.
