Innovative, provocative, groundbreaking and fearless – the world’s only artist to record with both Guyanese rapper Saukrates and indie rock band Broken Social Scene – k-os released 'Joyful Rebellion' in 2004. Almost a decade later, k-os is twice platinum, Grammy-nominated, toured with Drake, recorded with The Chemical Brothers, won a Source award, and won multiple JUNO and Much Music Video Awards (with a staggering combined 34 nominations!). This year, k-os returns with double album, 'BLack on BLonde' via Nettwerk Records (US). The album is two records: one album of rock tunes, on which k-os sings and plays drums, guitar and bass, and the other of old-school hip hop jams, including a song with his hero, Black Thought from The Roots. Making history in his hometown of Canada, BLack on BLonde is Canadian hip-hop’s first double album and the only thing large enough to contain k-os’ big musical ideas. "...I'm challenging my audience and myself and I'm doing real music inspired by my own unique experience and it feels really good."
