K.A.A.N. – Positive

It’s tough to stay positive these days, no doubt. K.A.A.N. (Knowledge Above All Nonsense) emplores us to “take a deep breath and don’t overthink it” on his new single “Positive”. For this song rapper Brandon Perry grabbed his frequent collaboration pair of ORBT on beats and The_Faiz_Phase on video for the slick and polished production we’ve come to expect from this deft wordsmith. Follow his SoundCloud feed to keep up with his prolific track releases.


K.A.A.N. – Last Thing

Two videos in one week! Not at all a surprise from the prolific rapper K.A.A.N., delivering “Knowledge Above All Nonsense” on the reg. “Last Thing” comes from K.A.A.N.’s newest EP, the second volume collaborating with producer SGULL that just went live on his SoundCloud stream yesterday. Someone could start a lucrative Patreon campaign to decode and transcribe all these lyrics, you know.


K.A.A.N. – Woods

Apparently K.A.A.N. is so powerful, just smoking some of his weed will cause full body spasms. The dextrous rapper’s newest video “Woods”, produced by Zane Alexander, gets goofy with breakfast cereal and the classic Diet Coke and Mentos trick. If you need more, don’t sleep on Abstractions, K.A.A.N.’s latest collaboration with Berlin producer Klaus Layer presented on cassette and clear vinyl by Redefinition Records.

KAAN – Oochie Wally Remix

2017 could go any number of ways, but I can confidently predict that K.A.A.N., MD rapper and star of one of our fave music videos of 2016, will continue to deliver a steady flow of amazing rhymes, tracks and videos. His latest layers K.A.A.N.’s knowledge over the classic 2001 track by Nas and Bravehearts “Oochie Wally”, and includes a lengthy preamble showing a glimpse into K.A.A.N.’s work ethic, involving keeping a neat desk and smoking weed the right way. He takes it all seriously.


Top 5 Videos of 2016 #4: K.A.A.N. – Phoenix

K.A.A.N. – Knowledge Above All Nonsense. Columbia, MD rapper Brandon Perry has delivered anything but nonsense in his prolific output this past year. He kicked off the year with a 5 song EP called Eclectic Audio with epic and cinematic production work from ORBT. Since then he’s posted new songs to his SoundCloud at a rapid clip, mirroring his signature nimble vocal delivery. Many of the songs have been filmed as music videos, unmatched in quantity by any other in our area. The best of the bunch is the first one we featured, Perry’s violent and surreal tale “Phoenix”, with direction by Josh Sallee and Logan Meis. KAAN stands apart in the DC hip-hop scene, and is bound for rising fame in 2017.


KAAN – Just Another Day

Just another day, just another K.A.A.N. video. By my count, rapper Brandon Perry has published an astounding 10 music videos so far in 2016, and there’s still a few weeks left. The_Faiz_Phase delivers both the woozy beats and the flickering VHS-style music video for “Just Another Day”, while K.A.A.N. provides his signature precise and rapid-fire delivery. K.A.A.N. is the best reason to get a SoundCloud account to keep up with his frequent releases.


K.A.A.N. – The Way

Rapper Brandon Perry’s latest video as K.A.A.N. takes us into the home studio where he and producer ORBT craft a seemingly endless supply of gems. This is a man-cave with a purpose. K.A.A.N. is wholly devoted to SoundCloud streaming, so head there to hear his latest mixtape with Genshin.


K.A.A.N. – Chill Bill

This is the 4th video we’ve featured this year from rapper Brandon Perry’s moniker K.A.A.N. (Knowledge Above All Nonsense). A look at his SoundCloud and YouTube feeds shows this young talent just can’t stop slinging song after song up online with determined regularity. His newest is Chill Bill, his unmistakeable rapid fire rhymes over the well-known track with the whistle sample from Kill Bill originally from San Diego’s Rob $tone. The_Faiz_Phase again mans the camera as K.A.A.N. spits fire about police brutality from a smelly alley somewhere in Maryland.


K.A.A.N. – Still

Hey DC. Hey. You remember the other day, when we showed you that video by K.A.A.N.? The one with the staccato machine-gun fire of dope lyrics to drown out any doubts about Brandon Perry’s ability to deliver Knowledge Above All Nonsense? Well well, guess what. Just one week after posting the song and video for “Water”, K.A.A.N. delivers again with the Cashflow-produced song “Still”, once again with The_Faiz_Phase crafting the accompanying visuals. Go to your calendar and draw a big red X on Friday September 9th cuz that’s the day you’ll be heading to H St. NE’s Rock & Roll Hotel to catch K.A.A.N. live alongside locals 8hundred, Chomp Chomp Beats and Detroit’s Skywlkr. And don’t miss Perry’s comedic impression skills at the end of the video.
