Knightstalker is back with a brand new solo track called “Kinfluences“. Well, it’s not really a “solo“-track as it also features rhymes from fellow Berlin rappers KC Da Rookee (by way of Nottingham, UK) & Kinzmania (Pure G.O.D. Manifested from Philadelphia, USA & P.O.T.), all part of the Kinzmen Clikk (KMC), one of Berlin’s most legendary collectives of the 90s/00s era.
Over a melodic yet booming instrumental courtesy of Knightstalker’s long time affiliate Romeo, the four MCs kick bars about their musical influences, which is even more interesting considering that the Kinzmen Clikk themselves have been a major inspiration for Knightstalker to start writing his own rhymes in English in the early 2000s. The song title also pays homage to the Kinzmen Clikk as some of their most successful singles started with a “Kin“ (i.e. “Kinetic“, “Kinfection“, “Kinfusion“, etc.).
The song will also appear as a bonus track on the upcoming digital re-release of Knightstalker’s ‘Knighttime‘ album.
