The Brooklyn-Harlem duo constructed a cinematic album that is reminiscent of the American Gangster soundtrack. The 11-track album is an ode to the most revered classic blaxploitation film The Mack is entitled Slim and Mickens. They connected through their synonymous appreciation for 70’s soul and vintage Hip-Hop.
Rapper and curator Frank Knight is an internationally known Hip-Hop artist. The Brooklyn native has made appearances on Hot 97, Sway In The Morning, DJ Tony Touch’s Toca Tuesday, The Source, and a variety of other platforms.
His kinship with Harlem’s own Chuck LaWayne started musically, developed into a friendship, and blossomed into the ideal partnership. Chuck LaWayne has worked with Lloyd Banks, Dave East, Vado, M.O.P., and many more respectable names in the Hip-Hop arena.
The seasoned creators are ready to debut their masterpiece. Slim and Mickens is out on January 18, 2021. It can be pre-ordered from Frank Knight’s website on CD or a digital version.
