Nearly one year after appearing on Action Bronson's 2018 studio album White Bronco, Knxwledge is serving up a new project of his own. Known as TodaysAlreadYesterday, the acclaimed beatmaker's latest release delivers 29 new compositions to listeners.

"Ever since I was born, my parents cleaned the church every single week on Saturdays," Knxwledge previously shared with Passion of the Weiss, opening up about his origins for a 2015 interview. "After I got done cleaning the church, I was able to mess around on the instruments. All my uncles and my aunt actually played the drums, and I had a few cousins who played the drums as well. Once all those instruments got beat up, I would take those back to the crib and then that was my only means of recording—I could record at the crib. My dad had this weird little tape recorder that he brought from Jamaica that randomly had a pitch bend on it and a speed wheel. I used to record the sermons at the church on little white tapes that had 40-minute sides. I would just use those and record, put my 303 up through the house and just record the tape that way."

You can check out Knxwledge's latest project, TodaysAlreadYesterday, below via BandCamp. You can also head on over to Knxwledge's official BandCamp to purchase and download TodaysAlreadYesterday.

These Are the Key Highlights and Takeaways from Today's Apple Keynote Event

These Are the Key Highlights and Takeaways from Today's Apple Keynote Event

Another keynote event has passed, and this time Apple revealed its latest generation of the iPhone smartphone, aptly named the iPhone 11 and iPhone 11 Pro. The phones were unveiled by the Apple team today and showcased three models, four cameras, a familiar, controversial design and a collection of enhancements and features, all of which -- while nothing particularly radical in nature -- will prove their worth as the phones release later this month.

Along with the latest phone, Apple also revealed new hardware in its other peripheral areas. An update was announced to the Apple Watch, which is now up to its 5th series. The new smartwatch is upgraded with minimal details, but a particular one has finally seen the light of day and draws the Apple Watch even closer to true timepiece territory. Software updates and a new iPad made this event one of the most well-rounded events in keynote history.

Here is a rundown of the best highlights and announcements that happened throughout the day.


Apple TV+: 1 Year Free

Apple skipped its usual statistics introduction and went straight into an App Store update, starting with the Apple TV+. A trailer for Jason Momoa's brand new thriller See previewed, along with some analytics about how the pre-announcements of Apple TV+ has fared. While these news bits were not too impressive for the audience, the cheers came when the pricing arrived and Tim Cook announced that new purchases of Apple hardware would include Apple TV+ for free.

Pricing for Apple TV+ is already one that is garnering particular buzz -- $4.99 USD a month for family use -- but once Cook stated new iPhones, iPads, iPod Touch, Mac or Apple TV would bundle the subscription for a full year, the crowded reacted genuinely. Apple TV+ begins on November 1.

Apple iPad: 10.2" "Base Model" with Pro Features

Apple's tablet was announced shortly after, with the new generation now coming at a bigger 10.2" size -- one that is closer to the iPad Pro's 11" starter size. Along with the size bump, power users will appreciate the inclusion of "Pro" features like more seamless multitasking, Apple Pencil and Smart Keyboard compatibility, I/O upgrades, game peripheral pairing and more. Even the iPad's pricing received notable fanfare, starting at $329 USD for the base model 32GB.

The new iPad delivers on September 30.

Apple Watch Series 5: Titanium Finishes

Before the event, the Apple Watch was rumored to be updated, but not much was revealed beforehand with the wearable. Now detailed as the "Series 5," the smartwatch comes in a flagship ceramic case, which was discontinued a few years back, as well as in a very handsome titanium finish. The metal -- which is resilient to elements, lightweight and naturally strong -- arrives in its "natural" tone of silver, while a black titanium will also release. The latter is much more low-key and hides the metal well, while the former is much flashier and noticeable. Time will tell -- no pun intended -- how these two finishes will patina.


Apple Watch Series 5: "Always On" Feature

Along with the cases, the Apple Watch S5 finally receives a much requested update since the original model -- the watch now has the ability to be "always on," that is the watchface will remain visible no matter how the watch is positioned.

Gone are the days when you wish you could just peek at your watch while on a first date, or awkwardly twisting your wrist mid-push-up to catch your change in heart rate. The secret is that the hardware pushes the watch's refresh rate down from 60Hz to 1Hz. This minimizes battery power while still allowing the user to stay connected to the information on the screen -- albeit refreshing only one second at a time. Apple clarifies that currently its own apps utilize the enhancement, with third party apps instead blurring in the background and a time showing in the foreground.



Apple iPhone 11: Six Vibrant Colors

The show-stoppers arrived in the form of the new Apple iPhone, naturally. The first announcement came in the form of the iPhone 11, which would replace the current "budget model" iPhone XR. The keynote proudly displayed the phone's vibrant array of finishes which include: green, purple, yellow, white, black and (Product) RED. While the latter four were stunning in themselves, the crowd absolutely loved the two new "Easter" shades of green and purple.

The green comes in a very mint-like shade that gives off a playful tone, while the purple is much more charming with a slight shade of grey within its 100% recycled aluminum. Whichever palette you choose, the color will surely turn heads come September 20, that is if you don't cover it with a case of course.

Apple iPhone 11: Ultra-Wide Lens, "Slofies"

The current XR and the XS phones are set apart with the number of lenses they both have, and the same is applied for the new models. The iPhone 11 adopts three camera lenses, the new one being its Ultra-Wide angle. The new lens is positioned vertically below the standard wide, but captures subjects within a highly-impressive 13mm equivalent focal length. With iOS 13's new software upgrades, the new angle will allow for seamless integration with the iPhone's camera app, along with the phone's video capabilities as well. The front facing camera on the 11 also receives upgrades -- TrueDepth Portrait mode, 4K video, and slow-motion selfies i.e. "Slofies," which of course received chuckles from the audience.

Apple iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max: Four Camera System

But the announcement of the day was of course reserved for the iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max. The designation caused its fair share of raised eyebrows -- presumably from professional photographers -- as we eventually realized the "Pro" is referring to the pro usability, particularly with the camera system.

The three cameras positioned on the back can seamlessly switch from the phone's standard 26mm "wide" lens, to a telephoto 2x 52mm "telephoto" to the updated "ultra-wide" focal length at 13mm. The photos taken with the demo models proved that the lens is fantastic -- lines remain sharp and straight, with no visible curvature commonly found in fish-eye lenses. The lens remains relatively fast at f/2.4 but for low-light photos -- not using the new Night Mode, that is -- it's better to keep with the standard wide lens which is brighter at f/1.8. Outdoor daytime landscape photos however will look epic with the new ultra-wide.




Apple iPhone 11 Pro and Pro Max: Midnight Green

One more thing -- Midnight Green. The new Pro models come in a brilliant new shade that is reminiscent of automotive greens -- in direct light the green comes off Emerald-like while other angles almost shine grey. The new shade also highlights the phone's new matte glass back, contrasted well alongside the polished stainless steel band wrapping around the phone. The other three model colors -- black, white and gold, remain handsome, however the Midnight Green is the crowd pleaser, hands down.

Jessie James Decker Has a Stylish Solution for Wearing Sweat Pants on a Date

Jessie James Decker Has a Stylish Solution for Wearing Sweat Pants on a Date

Jessie James Decker is all about fuss-free fashion. 

The country singer's latest collection for Kittenish, which she debuted during New York Fashion Week, reveals exactly that. From day-to-night wardrobe staples like pleather leggings, to boss babe-inspired pant suits and edgier denim pieces, Jessie is clearly designing for the modern woman on the go. Or as she told E! News exclusively, she's designing for herself!

"All my style is on every single one of these pieces," Jessie, 31, dished backstage of the show, which was held by Style360 and Klarna. "This line is practical, stylish, trendy, Southern and girl friendly."

So girl friendly, in fact, that Jessie made it a priority to include a few athleisure looks that would make any lazy (yet style-focused) lady a Kittenish fan. 

"We've turned sweatpants into a dressy item. We have changed the game in that," she shared.

Inspiration for the line's cropped sweatshirts and joggers—naturally accented with animal print—actually came from Jessie and hubby Eric James Decker's date nights.

"When I go out to dinner, I plan on eating a big ‘ol meal. So I want my pants to be stretchy. I'm a mom of three children. I don't have time to be dressed up in skintight dresses all the time," she explained.

The reality TV personality had some pretty-swoon worthy things to say about her longtime love, but you'll have to press play on the vide above to check them out! 

Burna Boy & Jorja Smith Reunite for Cinematic "Gum Body" Visual

Burna Boy & Jorja Smith Reunite for Cinematic "Gum Body" Visual

One month ago, Burna Boy and Jorja Smith reconnected for the official music video in support of their "Be Honest" collaboration. Now, the two superstars are linking up once more for a clip for another one of their high-profile collaborative releases, "Gum Body." Released as part of the tracklist for Burna Boy's new studio album African Giant, "Gum Body" was one of 19 records that called African Giant home, sitting alongside joint cuts featuring Future, YG, Jeremih, Damian Marley and others. Specifically, Burna Boy and Jorja Smith are teaming up with director Meji Alabi to breathe new life into "Gum Body," giving the song a cinematic visual component.

"Music started with drums, to announce childbirth, the coming of the king, trouble in the land or something. That’s where the music started, that soul is always going to be there. So whether you understand it or not, it’s here to speak to you," Burna Boy recently explained to us, sharing some insight into what informs his creative approach. "It’s [Afrofusion music] real, whether you understand what I’m saying or not, your soul is going to stand up ... music just never stops. I don’t think there’s a right time or wrong time to let the music out."

You can take a look at Burna Boy and Jorja Smith's new music video for "Gum Body" above.

Towards the end of August, Burna Boy shared another new music video for African Giant's fifth major single, "Pull Up."
