Legendary music icon Doodle­bug Cee-Know­ledge presents up and com­ing sing­er, song­writer, and record­ing artist KROWN.  The Tri-State area tal­en­ted and ver­sat­ile artist deliv­ers a mod­ern flow of Funk and Altern­at­ive Hip-Hop for all gen­er­a­tions of music pur­ists and enthu­si­asts to embrace.

KROWN’s debut pro­ject “Noth­ing Lasts Forever” is avail­able for free stream­ing and down­load. The mix­tape is exec­ut­ively pro­duced by Cee-Know­ledge with con­trib­ut­ing pro­duc­tion by Quickly Quickly, Steve Young, Beat­joven, LA Soulchyld, RIVR, Oui Lele, White­cliffs, Strk­fr, Krapf, and Cairo.

“I chose this as the name for my first pro­ject because I feel like those words per­fectly cap­ture the stage I’m at in life right now. The theme of this pro­ject is say­ing good­bye to the old me, the way I used to be, the things I used to believe, the way I used to see the world. This is a com­pil­a­tion of songs that pri­or to this, I would’ve been too scared to show any­one, let alone the world. At 22, This not only marks the begin­ning to my career but the begin­ning of who I truly am and what I’m truly sup­posed to be doing in this world. Because as they say, Noth­ing Last Forever..”–KROWN

The lead­ing single/video “Was­sup” describes a young man look­ing for love while weed­ing out decept­ive women and remain­ing focused on suc­cess. KROWN dis­plays inter­mit­tent jazzy vocals and ear cap­tiv­at­ing lyr­ics over an arrange­ment of fused soul and effer­ves­cent pro­duc­tion ori­gin­ally sampled from Don­ell Jone’s 1999 R&B hit “U Know What’s Up.”  Stream “Noth­ing Lasts Forever” on Band­camp.


KROWN’s move­ment in the music industry thus far hasn’t gone without notice or recog­ni­tion.  His jour­ney began early on in high school when he formed a rap group and released a few loc­al hits. From there he scored sev­er­al mod­el­ing gigs with BET, Phat Farm, and Nick­elodeon. After a brief hiatus KROWN ven­tured out to Los Angeles to rein­vent his music­al jour­ney and to evolve the record label and col­lect­ive Uplif­ted World.
