Day 11 – Suffering Popularity Breakdown

Artist: K-OS

K-OS was one of the early pioneers of Canadian rap and hip-hop. Along with guys like Choclair, they were influential in the burgeoning Canadian rap scene. In recent years, they have been eclipsed by pretenders such as Drake and genuine contenders such as Kardinal Offishal, K’naan and Aloe Blacc. Regardless, he still remains an important part of Canadian music.

His music is an eclectic mix of rap, rock, reggae and funk and his lyrics are generally much more positive than is the norm and his skills as a music producer and musician have given his albums a greater depth. If you’re a fan of Canadian hip-hop, you’re a fan of his, in particular his single heaven only knows, which is a meditation on the nature of religion and spirituality. His newer work, particularly the single ‘Born to Run’ from his second studio album has shown that he has continued to mature his musical style and he continues to be one to watch in the future.

Best Lyrics:
but every person is a star
so let your light shine far
and praise god
