Kris Kasanova came through and chopped it up with us recently. The Red Hook representative reflected on his debut LP War Paint and how it resinated deep with true fans and everyday people (like myself). Kris also explained why he’s “not trying to go down as the greatest lyricist ever.” He recalled meeting Jay Electronica at SXSW and Jay Elec already knowing who he was before they had ever met.
“We was at SXSW, Rocked a couple of shows, had fun. — I saw my man Law and he was with Jay Electronica. I said, “Hey wha’ts up bro? I’m Kris’ and he (Jay Electronica) said “… Kassanova.”
