Knifer - Impact Of A Legend (Enhanced CD)
A downloadable Enhanced CD for Windows
Hip-hop culture may still be in its teens (at best, preteens), but the gangster, musician, and Chavacano Rap icon Marvin "Knife" Sotelo is already a legend. Impact Of A Legend honors the legacy of rap's original gangster Eazy-E. For better or worse (perhaps a bit of both), he redirected the music's focus by creating gangsta rap, a genre that put America's romanticized notions about pulling yourself up by the boot straps through the grinders of poverty, desperation, and violence. More significantly, Knifer's remake of "We're All In The Same Gang" was an entire generation's wake-up call.
The album is a well produced eight-song compilation of previously unreleased music. The selections on Impact Of A Legend don't sound at all dated and are definitely worth adding to your collection. It has two additional features: a comic book that summarizes Knifer's narrative and a PC video game called Cuttin' Loose In East Los.
PC Game Review:
Cuttin' Loose In East Los is a wonderful strategy title with crafting, sandbox play, and some RPG elements. provides the opportunity of experiencing a light-hearted insight into the life of Gangsta Rapper "Knife" Sotelo and, as is the case with all ex-cons fresh out of prison, the main objective is to take back what's yours!
"Cuttin' Loose In East Los" models the life of Knifer marvelously, and provides the tools to live out your life fresh out of prison and take back what you lost in a way that I haven't seen in a video game, ever. I highly recommend picking it up." -Indie Love
If you've ever wanted to be Knifer for a day, here's your chance, the game is quite reminiscent to the Pokemon Blue game for the Game Boy. This PC game is part of the DVD Rom feature on Knifer's compilation album "Impact Of A Legend"
