Having collaborated with both Anderson. Paak and Carhartt WIP already this year, as well as reworking tracks by Drake and 21 Savage, it’s safe to say that Knxwledge has a lot going on. Seemingly never content to stay in one place with his projects, however, the California-based producer has followed up the release of WT.PRT.11 — the 11th instalment of his long-running instrumental series — with yet another beat tape. Offsetting vintage Drake cuts with classic hip-hop and R&B tracks on a notably 90s flavour tip, HEX. 10.8.’s 10 songs are just the latest stop on a prolonged tour of Knxwledge’s sprawling influences, taking in everything from Jagged Edge’s Nas-featuring “I Got It Remix” to Jamie Foxx’s part on “Slow Jamz” to Busta Rhymes‘ and Zhane’s “It’s a Party.”
