Interview with Sikh Knowledge

Last month our friends over at Sepia Mutiny posted an interview with Montreal-based hip hop producer Sikh Knowledge, which I think many TLH readers will find of interest. Sikh Knowledge aka Kanwar Anit Singh Saini has worked with many favorite Sikh hip hop artists including Humble the Poet, Mandeep Sethi, and Hoodini and breaks stereotypes right and left as he carves out his own path.

Sepia Mutiny’s Taz writes:

[W]hat really made an impression on me was Sikh Knowledges confidence in pursuing his life. At the age of 20, he decided to stop being what other people wanted him to be, dropped out of engineering school and re-started honestly. I dropped out, came out, and rearranged my whole life, he stated. I reapplied and did my undergraduate degree in music with a minor in linguistics. It was the happiest time of my life. I felt good about the decisions that I made. Hes currently pursuing his Master degree in speech language pathology while having the dual career of mixing some of the ill-est beats in North America.

You read right, Sikh Knowledge is an out and gay hip hop tattooed turban wearing artist. Ive definitely lost friends along the way, he said. Working relationships have gone sour. But at the end of the day, those artists that choose to work with me not because of how I can brag, but because of what I do. Theyre working with an underdog. That just proves to me that Ive got something to offer.

As an out hip hop, dancehall artist, he continued. people hear the music first and then they reach out to me and we make tracks. Subsequent to that if they find out if Im gay, my philosophy is thats their problem. Its not something I wear on my sleeve but I dont hide it either.
