Since teaming up with the Oakland-based record label, HyperSpace Music, KnowItAll, has been steady putting the final touches on his upcoming Weekend Rapstar EP. The EP introduces the rapper/producer, who also serves as a member of genre-bending electro-hip-hop group League510, as a solo artist, and details the true-to-life account an artist struggling to juggle his dreams with the reality of his day-to-day life.
In announcing the EP, KnowItAll and HyperSpace Music have also launched a Kickstarter campaign for the project, allowing fans the opportunity to pledge their support for the music in amounts as small as $10 or as large as $200. In return, KnowItAll and HyperSpace are offering fans a range of prizes and value added, including free music, t-shirts, and even the chance to win a specially designed HyperSpace bicycle. “There are millions of people just like me all over the world: part-time artists, writers, musicians, designers, dancers, techies, etc. Most of us are passionate, talented people just looking to catch a break and live out a dream,” writes KnowItAll, explaining his Kickstarter campaign. “With Weekend Rapstar, I want to reach those people.”
With the launch of the Kickstarter campaign, KnowItAll and HyperSpace are also excited to unveil the debut single from the Weekend Rapstar EP, “Crack & Powder.” KnowItAll refers to the self-produced track – a mix of eerie, industrial synths and pounding drums – as his “State Of The Union address to Ghetto America.” The song, KnowItAll says, “is a bit of social satire on how racism, police brutality, discrimination, social injustice and the efforts of the crack cocaine epidemic of the 80’s still have many lingering effects on minorities, the at-risk and the disenfranchised of today.”
