A rapper and producer from New York, New York — specifically the borough of Brooklyn — Kirk Knight, born Kirlan Labarrie, starting rhyming and working on music during his early teenage years. An encounter with Joey Bada$$ led to membership in Pro Era. Along with output as part of that crew, Knight amassed collaborations with Statik Selektah, Lee Bannon, and Smoke DZA, as well as with Bada$$, whose “Big Dusty” was something of a breakthrough for the artist.
In October 2015, after he signed with Cinematic Music Group, he released Late Night Special, for which he either produced or co-produced each cut. Featuring appearances from Bada$$, Noname Gypsy, and Thundercat, the album debuted at number 24 on Billboard’s rap chart.
Kirk Knight is available for corporate events, private shows, milestone celebrations (birthday, anniversary), fundraisers, festivals, and more.
