Album: Imperial + K.I.N.E.T.I.K. – Pencils Not Pistols EP


Pencils Not Pistols is the brand new E.P. from UK duo Imperial and K.I.N.E.T.I.K.  The sample-based production on the release united both Imperial and K.I.N.E.T.I.K. in their love for that strong tradition in Hip Hop. The duo pays homage with their artwork; as it is a parody of Biz Markie’s I Need A Haircut.  This unlikely duo linked up in late 2012 after Imperial sent K.I.N.E.T.I.K.  a polite email requesting to collaborate. After being impressed with the spelling, grammar and attached beat in the email, K.I.N.E.T.I.K. jumped at the chance to work on some music with this courteous chap. What initially began as a track for Imperial’s yet to be released solo album, slowly morphed into a collaborative project, which once again utilizes the tried and tested formula of one producer and one MC.
