Orlando’s very own iEKNOWS has a story to tell; the 6’9″ emcee had a promising college basketball to Auburn University, but a knee injury sidelined him from the court, yet serendipitously had him amongst the starting lineup of soulful, conscious hiphop where he thrives. The innovative king’s single “Intermission 1998” features R&B artist Drea Brooke and is from his forthcoming album, Rolling With The Punches, an inspirational contribution to why black lives matter.
