Hip Hop Review: Kris Kasanova has experienced his fair share of struggle and change, “The Great Escape” serves as Nova’s blueprint to being proud of where he’s from. You can check out the entire album here.
Not only does this Red Hook representative want you to love where you come from, but he wants his listeners to accept change, good or bad. One of Kris’s major life changes is fatherhood. The bond between himself and his young son is clearly depicted before you press play to the 7-track LP.
Not only has The Great Escape been buzzing in the streets but industry influencers are picking up on what Kris has to deliver. “Keep Goin” (feat. Sam Roberts) was premiered on Ebro Darden’s Beats1 channel two weeks ago. It’s also one of his rather reflective joints out of the seven featured songs.
“A wise man told me ‘You want it you gotta get it’. …YOU GOTTA WORK…”
Many up and coming artists could use this kind of advice from someone whose journey may resonate with theirs. Kris also references his team and crew, HOMESKOOL, shortly after.
The LP has a little bit of everything you want in your new favorite emcee: swag, truth, and guidance. Swag because that’s the only way to sum up “Finessin”, which can be determined to be a live performance favorite in the near future. ”
Truth because Kris is keeping it ‘one-hundred’ with listeners. Guidance because this artist and father has thought about his future and would love for his son to look back like “Damn, I respect my dad”.
Take a walk with Kris Kasanova on his latest project, The Great Escape, you won’t regret it. You just might learn a thing or two from the Brooklyn hood star.
