Anik Khan Releases Shadows Single and Trailer, talks NY Rap and His Album
“I Don’t Know Yet”, Due Out This Summer!
June 15, 2015— Recording artist Anik Khan released his follow up single “Shadows” and a trailer for the video, exclusively with YAHOO! Music, on June 15, 2015.
This single comes on the heels of Anik’s critically acclaimed debut single “The Knowing”, which has garnered rave reviews from outlets such as Hypetrak, Karen Civil, Karma Loop, Ebro, SOURCE and others. They have deemed the Bangladesh-born, Queens-bred MC to, “possesses a disastrous flow that should easily have him inserted into the playlist of any fan craving raw rap. By kicking off “Khanversations” with “First off, f*ck everybody,” with a deliberate pause, it’s obvious Khan isn’t into making new friends unless you’re on his skill level when it comes to destroying a mic”. The video also uses the “truth” sample by pop culture phenomenon and lead singer Alex Ebert of Edward Sharp and the Magnetic Zeros.
Anik Khan is described as curry chicken mixed with collard greens. His love of photography, culture and art has helped him capture what he defines as, “a mirror into the a new generation”. With co-signs from Noisey/VICE, Pigeons and Planes, Pitchfork, Hypetrak, Karen Civil, EBro, WhooKid, SOURCE, VIBE, AXS and Mass Appeal, Anik is one of the most promising hip-hop artists of 2015. Milestones in his career such as guest appearing on the hit show; The Boondocks Mixtape alongside Troy Ave, Lil Herb, Childish Major and The Alchemist, show the NY artist is poised to break out of the pack of artists leading a new wave of socially conscious, culture curators of the Alt- Hip-Hop movement.
