Kirk Knight is best known for his prominent role alongside Joey Bada$$ and the Pro Era click. He's produced a handful of Joey's tracks along with being featured on Pro Era tapes and on some of the member's solo projects. Until now, he's mostly played the sidekick, but come Friday, his debut full-length will be released, making Knight a published MC.

Late Knight Special features Joey Bada$$ (of course) along with Thundercat, The Mind, Mick Jenkins, and NoNameGypsy. Hopefully the album brings the fire production he created on Joey Bada$$' "Big Dusty." If "Brokeland" is any indication, we're in for a treat. In order to get you up to speed with the Brooklyn-born MC/producer, we've decided to highlight his ten essential tracks. Enjoy, and be sure to pick up Late Knight Special this Friday.
