Soon, Knucks will release his upcoming album Alpha Place, which has already been highlighted by the numerous single releases, including “Hide & Seek,” “Bando,” and “Alpha House” with Venna. On Monday (Mar. 4), emcee Leon the Professional returns with “Leon the Professional,” a self-produced offering whose concept and title are based on a 90s French motion picture of the same name:
Combining the thematic elements of that movie with Knucks’ upbringing, the new video for “Leon the Professional” captures the viewer in the Kilburn neighborhood of North West London, along with Alpha House, the house where Knucks spent his childhood. Through the clip’s rest, Knucks transforms into an assassin akin to Jean Reno’s Léon until by the clip’s conclusion he too becomes a target himself.
The release of Alpha Place will come as the follow up to 2020’s London Class, a critically acclaimed album that included 12 collaborations and tracks by KXYZ, Sam Wise, Venna, Loyle Carner, and Kadiata. Before that, Knucks kept his constantly-growing fanbase occupied with the award-winning Nrg 105, which was assisted by Oscar #Worldpeace and Wretch 32.
