Biography

So when twenty-three year old producer/emcee hailing from Little Rock, Arkansas, puts his hand toward anything; he is just that. Born, John F. Pickens, Jr., emcee “know(juander)” is five years deep into this love he calls Hip Hop, but his knowledge of music easily spans four decades. Besides being an emcee and a poet at heart, there are also matters of the soul. Nothing about having the ear for samples or the knack for placing conceptual accounts of life over soulful drums and chopped samples can be taught in a classroom, still “know” describes himself as a student of the music. Starting into production after meeting beat maker Stutterin Stan at a Hawaii Beat Battle known as Beat Root, “know” began to ask the technical questions that created an avenue to translate the music in his head into soulful beats, and he has since been full steam ahead, gaining a knowledge of the music and artists he samples; showing a creativity to take everything from the most obscure record lost to the world, to neo-soul music by contemporary artists; creating the canvas for other artists to use as murals. After only eight short months, his skill in production is increasing and his catalogue of music has grown by several hundred records.
