Knowmads is a highly productive local group with a growing amount of potential. The group's producer, Jester, is a classically-styled, sample-based beat-maker who's got solid work with town staples Grynch and La under his belt and serves as the crew's backbone. Emcees Tom "Pepe" and Tom "Cheef" Wilson are positive-minded lyricists who are quickly developing, though their verses aren't yet packed the kind of fire that collaborators like Chev and La bring to the table. Their heads are in the right places, though, and the group as a whole is on the come up, so you might as well get familiar now. With Camila Recchio, David Dalla G. TODD HAMM
