The Knux may be outwardly vulgar on paper and in their first single, but don't even thing of dismissing them based on NSFW EP names. The duo know how to ride these sticky beats they create better than the drivel thats been polluting the radio these days, posing as "rap." Kentrell "Krispy Kream" Lindsey and Alvin "Rah Almillio" Lindsey (I love these names) have a really well-tuned flow, reminiscent of Big Boi and the Outkast crew (I've said this before and I'll say it again and again) and it pays off immensely; the songs are quick footed and smart sounding, the lyrical jabs sting in all the right places, and by the time we get to the foul-mouthed fifth track, we're inviting the scrutiny on our ears. F*ck me? Whatever you guys say, as long as you rap it. Seriously.
