New Jersey-resident Silent Knight is readying the release of his fourth album, Busy Is My Best Friend II featuring production by !llmind, DJ K.O., Audible Doctor, J57, and guest appearances including Homeboy Sandman, Rasheed Chappell, Soul Khan, YC The Cynic and MadKem. He describes this release as his “transition album.”
Busy Is My Best Friend II is me getting it out of my system. The time period of not just working non-stop, but moving non-stop, being exhausted mentally and physically [has passed]. Not to say it’s still not about working hard and staying busy, but it’s about working smart.
Emerging from the New Jersey underground Urban performance circuit comes Silent Knight, a recording artist who brings a new glimmer of hope to Hip-Hop culture.
This Brooklyn born – Tri State raised performer’s catalog includes production from some of today’s most sought after beatsmiths like 9th Wonder (Jay-Z, Little Brother, Mary J. Blige), Ayatollah (Mos Def, Styles P, Ghostface Killah) Da Beatminerz (Boot Camp Clik, Black Moon, Smif-N-Wessun), & Illmind (G-Unit, Pharoahe Monch, Inspectah Deck).
