k-Os – Crucify


It has been a long time since we have featured Toronto MC/singer-songwriter/guitarist K-OS who hit #25 on our top 40 tracks in 2009 list for “I Wish I knew Natalie Portman”. We are happy to be reacquainted to the creative talents of K-OS on his quite phenomenal catchy-hooked hip-hop-scratchy bold-versed Ella-sampling recent release “Crucify” off his forthcoming Can’t Fly Without Gravity LP that is out on August 28th via Dine Alone Records.

K-Os – BlackWater (Feat. Sebastien Grainger)


new and previewed from The Anchorman Mixtape, dropping August 6th, K-Os teams up with fellow canuck and Death from Above 1979’s Sebastien Grainger for singing and drumming stylings on “BlackWater”. as for the track; amazing-hat dude (above) looks pretty damn psyched on it, and we think James Brown could definitely get down. your take…
