Klokwize - Bringing The Hood & The Hippies Together
Tuesday, July 24, 2012

What a person listens to says a lot about them. According to Klokwize, when a person picks up his album, “it’s saying that people can color outside the lines.” Klokwize has been coloring outside the lines for years, crossing genres until he came up with his perfect sound. That sound is something he calls Hood Hippie, which can be loosely described as A Tribe Called Quest meets Sublime meets Shwayze, led by a gravelly voiced emcee. Hood Hippie also happens to be the name of Klokwize’s official debut album.

This week I caught up with Klokwize to discuss what Hood Hippie is all about, the very personal nature of his music, and why he decided he needed a band. Klokwize also revealed a career affirming moment that took place in, of all places, his mother’s attic.
