Hailing from Chicago Illinois, upcoming songwriter Kiari Barnes who goes by the stage name KiddxSurge a.k.aThe Surgeon releases his new single “Knock Knock” on all streaming platforms. Surge recalls creating the record Knock Knock while sitting in the house one day thinking. “What if the police run in right now? What are you gon’ do?” he says in his own words. This thought inspired him to look through beats until he found a grungy one. The song is also inspired and sponsored by Scuba Squad Extracts who currently has the best thc diamonds on the West Coast. Surge says he was aiming to release a single that would be an anthem for all the hustlers and corner boys across the world. Starting from the early days of just rapping and being bored in the house, hanging out on the corner smoking while listening to instrumentals would start something much more.
After getting positive feedback from friends and people in the neighborhood encouraged Barnes to pursue taking music a-lot more seriously. KiddxSurge inspirations are J.Cole, Lil Wayne, Gucci Mane, Juice WRLD, Meek Mill, Yo Gotti and more. He’s opened up for artists like Lil Webbie, Trizzy Track and has performed at many festivals showcasing his talent as well as throwing his own 4/20 event every year.
