Cort Knoxx has taken on the title as a West Coast Peninsula 'Rap Pioneer'. He grew up in California's Northern Peninsula, which played a big part for him and his music.
Growing up during the 80's and 90's, he was heavily influenced and impacted by the by the music around him. From Run DMC to LL Cool J (to name a few), he was so inspired from these artists that he decided to pick up the pen and write his own rhymes. This is where his music career began. Now flashing forward, Cort Knoxx has been been crafting away at his skills and talent, the same way and the same grind that motivated him to pick up the pen 20 years ago.
Cort Knoxx is here with his latest single 'iStunt', off his latest album with FogBoy Entertainment. The song is confident - definitely over confident and we love it. Cort Knoxx raps about making making money, and the grind that he puts in day and night to make that money. Work hard, play hard. He has that California confidence that shows throughout his music, and his all around image. This is the kind of song you want to hear blasting in your car, or while you're out on the dance floor catching the vibes from Cort Knoxx's addictive flow and beats.
Cort Knoxx shows no sign of slowing down anytime soon. With his release 'iStunt', he has built up to get this point in his music career. We see Cort Knoxx breaking into the hip hop charts in the coming months, and we can't wait to hear what he's working on next.
