[Artist] Darrell Kelley Pleads “Take Your Knees Off Our Necks!!!” in New Release

#GetSOM via @essince

Viral Records has announced the release of both a DVD collection of music videos as well as an audio album from R&B artist Darrell Kelley. The two share the same title of “Take Your Knees Off Our Necks!!!”.

“Take Your Knees Off Our Necks!!!” has been the cry echoed in urban streets, as sadly, the long list of names from the African-American community and the economically suppressed who were killed by the law enforcement officers continues to grow. Hardly a week goes in the American news cycle that does not contain at least one report of another death of Black and poverty-stricken people at the hands of the police. Darrell Kelley is among the many millions saying enough is enough, and he says it through his music.

Straight Official Sit Downs: KNOIR

KNOIR is our hot seat for this week’s edition of Straight Official Sit Downs. We definitely caught a vibe in our recent interview. Check it out down below!

Q&A WITH KNOIR

What is your Name? Where are you from and what got you interested in the music
entertainment industry?

KNOIR: My name is KNOIR (pronounced Noir/ silent K) and I’m from Fort Washington, MD. My
interest in the entertainment industry stems from writing original music in 2015 and
finding a passion for music.

Who and/or what inspires you to create?

My life experiences as well as those from my friends and family. As far as influences
of my creativity, I would say Miguel, Frank Ocean, and Kanye West, and a few other
abstract creatives come to mind when generating new ideas.

How would you describe your sound?

I would describe my sound as a combination of R&B/Pop with elements of Hip-Hop. I like
to use elements of several genres and make original ideas in R&B/Pop.

THE CREATIVE PROCESS

So what is your creative process like?

My creative process is a creative zone almost like an out of body experience. Once
the idea of the record is decided, I love to build metaphors around the concept
discussed. I’m very particular in how my words are used and placed so that the flow of
the song is maintained and enhanced. I definitely marry my lyrics with the tracks I
write them to.

Which artist(s) would you like to collaborate with?

On my immediate list I would say IDK, Pharrell, Frank Ocean, Kendrick Lamar, and
Tyler The Creator. But I could name artists for days.

What is one message you would give to your supporters?

Create a reality for yourself. Learn to only be influenced by the things that you want to
influence you and separate the rest. In this day and age, information is so readily available and constantly changing, so that you DON’T lose yourself in it.

What is a talent/skill you have that most people don’t know about?

I love to draw and I can play piano.

What would you be doing right now, if you weren’t doing music?

Business Marketing for sure.

Who are some artists/people you admire and why?

I truly admire IDK because he isn’t trying to buy people success in the industry. He’s
educating people to become valuable. Self worth is key and he continues to preach it
as he progresses in his career. Jay-Z for the same reason is dropping knowledge in
his music. It’s just about putting that information to good use.

IN CLOSING


What is the best advice that you’ve received?

Going back to my advice to people. With that same train of thought, I was once told,
“Nothing in life can be proven, only disproven. Do with that what you will.” That advice
has allowed me to protect my thoughts, creativity, and sanity.

If you could change anything about the industry, what would it be?

Stop allowing money to dictate successful music. So many top artists paved their
success because they out bid another artist for the top spot and I think we lose the
appreciation for the music that way. Good music is good regardless of the budget. “It’s sad that people… can’t see that sometimes.


So what’s next for you and where would you like to see yourself in the next year?

Next up for me is a visual for “Catch a Vibe” and I’m currently working on a project with producer “Dre Moon.” He’s ultra talented and has been a massive part of my music career to date. I would love to see this project successfully release with a major campaign behind it as I continue my fanbase development over the next
year.


What is your social media? How can people get in contact with you?

You can find me on all streaming platforms as KNOIR on Instagram and Twitter @kmb4lyfe and you can find my music on all major streaming platforms.
