Knxwledge simply can’t stop making beats. Even before he released his second album with Stones Throw Records in 1988, the prolific producer dropped two new mixtapes just days before its premiere, continuing his WrapTapes and Hexual Sealings series. Now post-1988, Knxwledge is back with the sixth installment of his Meek Mill freestyle series with MEEK.VOL6.

The tape spans eight new tracks comprised of archival Meek a-cappella bars including the above “realnihgagrammys_” that serves as the mixtape’s outro. Back in late-January, Knxwledge gifted his listeners MEEK.VOL5 with plenty of remixed home video footage from when Meek Mill was a teenager.

“All these random verses, the Meek stuff — I went to school in Philly, that’s where that’s from,” Knxwledge told HYPEBEAST.
“I have this weird, wild appreciation for sampling. So much that if a person actually hit me up, I mean, I’d have to make sure it was genuinely them, like I would literally figure out the stats and I would give all that sh*t to that person. It’s their music, you feel me? I don’t have any kind of system. Like if Meek hit me up — and he already heard them and it’s fine — but if he was like, “Yo take this down, this sh*t is a**,” I would have to take it down.”

Listen to MEEK.VOL6 below and revisit HYPEBEAST’s “Knxwledge Can’t Stop Working” interview about his latest record, 1988.
