About Kuf Knotz
No stranger to Philadelphia’s live music scene Kuf Knotz has created quite a name for himself accompanying nationally renowned tours with the likes of artists ranging from Common to The New York Dolls. Kuf even battered down historical barriers by becoming the first ever hip hop act to open up for the legendary “Boss” — Mr. Bruce Springsteen, himself — at the internationally covered rally for then presidential candidate, Barack Obama on Philly’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway. Kuf’s career highlights did not end there, however, going on to record “Unstoppable,” the official song of World Series Champions, The Phillies, last year with fellow notorious local artists, G. Love and Chuck Treece. Bringing his solo efforts together for the first time into a cohesive 14-track LP, Kuf Knotz found a home for “Boombox Logic” on the country’s very first student run label, Drexel University’s Mad Dragon Records. “Boombox Logic” exploded throughout the sound waves this past October with tracks featuring G. Love and Digable Planet’s Doodlebug. For more information on Kuf Knotz and/or to check out some of the critically acclaimed tracks off of “Boombox”
