Memphis emcee Knowledge Nick presents the music video for “Give It Up”, his new single produced by Memphis beatsmith DJ Hush. The video is directed by Prophecy of Liberated Filmz, and the track will appear on Nick’s forthcoming mixtape Slaughter Season, a collaboration with Hush featuring beats from Empee and MaxPtah. Nick has opened up for artists like Ghostface KIllah, Raekwon and Gift of Gab. Nick calls his new song as “just a lyrical onslaught – point blank period. I needed the production to be hard yet have that classic hip hop feel with a new jack swing. The inspiration came from how some of these ‘viral’ emcees put on facades and are culture vultures. In my opinion hip hop is not about how many blogs you are on, how many YouTube views you have, etc. It’s literally a way of life. I definitely felt I made my point across with the joint while speaking straight from the heart.” Slaughter Season drops late summer on Artist Tree Entertainment.
