VK – VK is a hardcore lyrical versatile all in your face rap album that holds no punches. Her hardcore versatile lyrics leave much to be desired. Her delivery will remind you of The Lady of Rage. The songs she raps on about are somewhat touching. This album was more lyrical than her Vanesha Knight album was. This album had a more rough aggressive gangsta rap feeling. You have your lyrical gangsta rap songs such as Mayday and Infamous Cycle. Many fans wish VK had put out more music because she was very dope lyricist. She was never truly recognized as she should’ve been.
Some of you may remember that her album was advertised as “VK” in the Chronic 2000 album, Too Gangsta For The Radio, and 2Pac – Until The End Of Time. Her album was listed in under the Coming Soon section despite there not being any artwork designed for her album.
VK is none other than Vanesha Knight who is Suge Knight’s niece from New Orleans, Louisiana. She was originally living in Dallas, Texas at the time Suge signed her to Death Row. She was a female rapper who was signed to Death Row Records as she was brought on to fill the role of The Lady of Rage after she left the label.
VK’s VK album was supposed to be released some time in 2001. However VK’s album was never released as the album was never completed due to Suge’s incarceration and the bankruptcy of Death Row Records.
Plus she was very difficult to work with. Vanesha Knight was taken off Death Row’s roster during the Chronic 2000 tour for demanding a hair dresser before every show. She would demand a hair dresser before every show or concert. This frustrated Suge. So he decided to let her go. By March 2000, she was no longer signed to Death Row Records.
VK comes with a lyrical takeover and causes mayday with the track Mayday. The song was recorded in 1999 for the Chronic 2000 album.
VK releases the funkiness out of the chamber. She wants to see who remains left afterwards. Let’s see who remains. She wants to see who’s got the knack irrevocable and indisputable brain. Unquestionably it is VK who has the irrefutable and disputable brain. Holler “mayday!” as VK has come out to play. She knows she can hold her own spot with the microphone despite being featured on other songs constantly. She can take the microphone and hold her own against any crew.
It don’t even make no sense be this hype. Atomic lyrics are hittin’ you fools makin’ your fingers drop the mic. Who’s the first eye to eye witness to feel the pain on the brain and plus get put on her shit list? Her shit is addictive like that sticky green chronic. Like sticky buddha sets.
Infamous Cycle deals with the vicious cycle domestic abuse against a spouse. This song was based off domestic abuse VK experienced with her family. Someone in her family was abused by their spouse. VK’s mother’s sister had a man who she thought loved her. They had a good life together until he decided to abuse her. This is one of the darker songs on the album.
Infamous Cycle was written and recorded in preproduction around 1992. However the song was never mastered properly though. And only exists in ADAT and cassette as a demo song.
The song uses super thick heavy bass lines (funk bass lines) which rumble your speakers behind a quiet rock guitar underneath. Those super thick heavy bass lines and dope beats are what make the song good and captivating to listen to.
The song is known for the catchy but hard hitting controversial chorus lyrics, “Take it out on me but that’s about enough/Take it out on me but that’s about enough/Take it out on me but that’s about enough/You put your hands me again I’ll put your ass in handcuffs”
This is Jazzmatix is a jazz rap song where funk and jazz meet rap. This is Jazzmatix. Feel the static through your speaker. VK takes us to another galaxy with the brehsiveness of Death Row’s production and sound. Feel the spirits. Get with this intellect that direct. The remix is even more brehsive. The song was recorded in early 2000.
I rate this album 5/5*****!!
