The sounds of k-os continues to tread the tight rope of next level and retro greatness. The Canadian based, Virgin Records artist has a new album, and it is sure to be one of the highlight albums of his career! "Collected” is aptly titled, as it is an anthology release that covers the short span of his bright career. The album is in stores now, at a special price for frugal music fans. While this is a re-release of some of his past hits, there are a few remixes here, along with his version of Feist's "Mushaboom," where he gives the song a beat box groove that Dougie Fresh & Razhel would be proud of.k-os spent his summer vacation on the road with Gym Class Heros and the Vans Warped Tour. He is currently in Canada, with several live dates still on the horizon. The album is a way to fast forward new fans through his style and music, with many of his hits in tow.
Die-hard fans will be pleased to hear five unreleased cuts, including "i am" as well as the greeting "introsuckshun." From there we are hit off with his personal picks of the litter, with "Man i Used to be," "the Rain" and "Crabbuckit" among the k-os gems listed. This collection is a great example of how far Hip-Hop has come and how far it continues to go.
k-os continues to push the limits of what a rap act should look and sound like, with his experiments in blues, rock, and dance fueled tracks, all topped off with a bit of B-Boy brashness for good measure. The award-winning, platinum selling artist is probably the best rapper that you may have never heard of, if you’re sleeping on the craft. I highly recommend this CD!
