“My friends say this is the record I’ve been waiting my whole life to make, there’s a confidence now,” says k-os “It feels like it’s my time.”
With over 27,000 singles already sold between “Dog is Mine” and “NYCE 2 KNOW YA”, k-os propels his innovative, provocative, ground-breaking, fearless and incredibly talented reputation by crisscrossing genres and radio formats challenging conventional genres. BLack on BLonde is two slamming records: one album of rock tunes, on which k-os sings and plays drums, guitar and bass, and one album of old-school hip hop jams.
BLack on BLonde features exciting collaborations with Travie McCoy, Metric’s Emily Haines, Black Thought (The Roots), Corey Hart, Sam Roberts and Sebastien Grainger (Death from Above 1979).
With an impressive history to say the least…he’s twice gone platinum, toured with Drake, recorded with The Chemical Brothers, won a Source award, won multiple JUNO and MMVA Awards (with a staggering combined 34 nominations!) and was a 2005 Grammy-nominee, k-os continues to challenge himself and the industry as a whole. “I consider myself to be hip hop’s first alternative/emo-rapper, and now it feels like the game’s finally caught up to me,” says k-os. “It’s my job to take the music to the next level.”
