The multi-talented, Chicago-based Knox Fortune released his second original track, "Help Myself" on SoundCloud.

If you are unfamiliar, Knox Fortune is the producer behind Chance the Rapper's fun, rhythmic track "All Night."

Knox told Fader, the electronic, folk-infused "Help Myself" was written by “focusing on my temptations and recognizing my faults.” In the track he holds his ground as a strong producer and proves he's got chops as he swoons with his repetitive, relatable line, "I can't help from going back."

The song was co-written by another Chicago collaborator Joey Purp. Joey's carefree single "Girls" featuring Chance The Rapper was produced by Knox. Other artists he's worked with include, Cam O'biTowkioVic Mensa and the genre-bending KAMI.
