Image: 1604053 25 year old, Howard County, Maryland native, Brandon Perry also
known as K.A.A.N. (pronounced Kon) has the talent and qualities to
once again write a new chapter in the rap instruction manual. When
your moniker is an acronym for “Knowledge Above All Nonsense”
(K.A.A.N.), hip hop is going to hold you accountable. Accountability
and credibility are not only evident in K.A.A.N.’s music, but equally
obvious in his work ethic and output. In a short time span, as he
has been honing and developing his craft in real time, the rapper
has organically amassed tens of thousands of followers across
numerous social media platforms and consistently generated
hundreds of thousands of plays via soundcloud and youtube from
his multiple projects.Some of the biggest names in the industry have
extended admiration and support of K.A.A.N.’s movement. Cosigns
from Chuck D, features on NPR, and regular performances on both
US coasts are among the many stripes the newcomer has earned.
His vinyl debut entitled Uncommon Knowledge on Redefinition
Records adds another notch to his belt, in that K.A.A.N.had the honor
of working exclusively with legendary music producer K-Def (Real
Live, LL Cool J, Ghostface, Diddy) for an entire EP. Listening to him
rhyme may remind an experienced hip hop head of rap’s greats and
while K.A.A.N. respectfully gives credit where due when speaking
of his influential mc’s, he attributes just as much of his inspiration to
his fandom and study of artists from other genres including Nirvana
and Johnny Cash. The old saying goes, “Knowledge is Power”, yet
for such a popular catchphrase, common sense is still arguably
uncommon. Leave it up to K.A.A.N. to take intelligence from rarity to
readily available for the masses.
