This slick new track, which explores various genres and suggests that Dope Knife could move in all sorts of directions from here, was produced by Black Caesar, features Anne Santos of My Maiden Name, and includes Bradley Wilkerson on keys.
Dope KNife and his frequent collaborator Miggs Son Daddy will be performing on Feb. 26 at The Jinx with Milwaukee-based Milo, who was recently named one of 10 New Artists You Need To Know by Rolling Stone.
From Rolling Stone:
Why You Should Pay Attention: Rory Ferreira’s immersion in underground hip-hop dates back to his youth: His uncle is respected Chicago MC Nizm, and he has known Open Mike Eagle since childhood. The latter led him to Nocando, a host at the iconic L.A. beats showcase Low End Theory, and owner of the Hellfyre Club imprint that released his early work. While Milo (who took his name from the hero in Norton Juster’s children’s classic The Phantom Tollbooth) honed his craft through modest releases like 2012’s Milo Takes Baths, he studied philosophy at St. Norbert College in De Pere, Wisconsin.
