Kirk Knight from Pro Era gets the On The Come Up treatment.


Kirk Knight is probably going to be the next rapper from the Pro Era collective to break, so best start paying attention. The New York native and friend of Joey Bada$$ stopped by our office to partake in the On The Come Up series, and took us through his start in the rap game, and discovering hip-hop to begin with, how he got into producing and more.

"I started making beats off the table, in middle school, so I was already doing it but I never thought of it as making music it was just a hobby. That's when Joey told me, I remember like in the summer over Play Station, 'yo you should take it to FL Studio and try to really create beats.' That's when I started honing in," Kirk says of evolving as a producer.

Kirk also talks about discovering when he could "actually rap" and tells us what's next for the rapper in 2015. Watch OTCU above.
