INFINITY KNIVES & BRIAN ENNALS ‘King Cobra’

Jul 7, 2022 | Hip Hop, Reviews

Genre trope melting hip hop experimentalists

This partnership has delivered before with their heavy hitting post-George Floyd murder opus, Rhino XXL. Now, the Baltimore hip hop duo drop King Cobra, affirming their reputation as genre trope melting experimentalists. Somehow, despite their ability to switch the vibe at ease, this set gels with Brian Ennals’ commanding flows anchoring the ship, allowing Infinity Knives free reign to run with his leftfield explorations. We are blessed with passages of ambient serenity, spiritual messaging, and flashes of Run-DMC style jams. The modulated synth, and fractured beat of Coke Jaw, typifies the tough narrative and unorthodox production. Welcome back.
