  Hiphop artist, GaKnew Roxwel, dives into psychology and brings back a bounty of gems. Under the Influence, paired with the Sound of Silence album, creatively shares the science of automatization and how habits reign over more than we realize.

Written like a film, Sound of Silence gives a first person narrative of Calvin’s journey, while Under the Influence analyzes his psychology with a host of behavioral theories. This project maps out a path to balanced emotional health and inner peace by breaking down the complexities of influence and our innate dependency on automatized functions.

About the author

   Slim Kid Tre of the world-renowned hiphop group known as The Pharcyde calls GaKnew Roxwel “one of the top five emcees of all time”. GaKnew is a National Poetry Slam Champion with artistic accomplishments that range from appearing on Russell Simmons Def Poetry Jam to spray painting the backdrop for Chris Brown’s 2012 Billboard Music Awards performance. Yet, being creative isn’t GaKnew’s only job. He is also a Senior Social Work investigator for a non-profit law firm in Los Angeles, Ca, and has worked daily with the county’s foster youth for approximately seven years. For a decade prior to that GaKnew volunteered with various community organizations as a mentor, and worked closely with Leila Steinberg, mentor of Tupac Shakur, in developing an after school arts program. The combination of GaKnew’s careers is what birthed this socially therapeutic project, Under the Influence.
