It’s true, the god returns with a double decker project that promises more rock and old school hip-hop than one can stomach in one listen. Add appearances by Travie (McCoy), Tariq Trotter (aka Black Thought) and a few others into the mix, and you’ll wonder why this Canadian emcee calls himself this generation of hip-hop’s first emo-rapper.
While we’re not so sure about that one (uhm.. Kid Cudi, perhaps), we are feeling k-os’ chameleon-like talents on this 2-for-1 album. Expect to hear him singing and playing drums, guitar and bass throughout Black on Blonde.
