Editors’ Notes

One of the biggest solo acts to recently come out of Canada, k-os has been rhyming since the early '90 and releasing increasingly popular albums for more than a decade now. Black on Blonde is his fifth full-length since 2002's No Exit, and it features two distinct sides. The first part is more or less straightforward hip-hop, emphasizing his emcee origins with lyrical gymnastics set to uptempo boom-bap-inspired production. The second half is more representative of what k-os has become: a multi-genre pop artist and chameleonesque singer who's as comfortable crooning alongside guitars as rhyming to the beat. No matter what style you prefer, there's something for everybody here. Even if you're not a rap fan, his music is melodic and unthreatening enough to get into (think The Black Eyed Peas). Even if you're not a rock fan, there's enough soul in the mix to enjoy it (think Jay-Z with Linkin Park). Standouts here include "Mojo On," "Play This Game," and "Try Again" featuring Black Thought.

Customer Reviews


What happen to your meaningful lyrics with substance? Just because you have Black Thought on an album doesn't mean it's good. I have been a fan for a long time. There was a time when you didn't allow cursing on your album because your vocab was so extensive. I know rappers want to get paid but don't sell your self short.


This is what taking time with your craft can produce. Fans of his music are never disappointed and this album seem to have transcended his past worked. Don't just take my word for it go listen to the samples. Your ears won't lie to you.

Excellent As Always

K-OS can tackle any style of music in my opinion, and over the course of his career he has. While he is a hip-hop artists you can tell his taste and inspirations come from all over and no one album is the same. That's a true fan of music and a true talent. And to all the people complaining about the album being Parental Advisory and the assumption that he's changed his mind about bad language all you have to do is LISTEN TO THE ALBUM before you condemn it. There is bad language on ONE TRACK from the FEATURED artist. Not K-OS. Cool the fussing and groove to the tunes.


Born: February 20, 1972 in Toronto, Ontario, Canada

Genre: Hip-Hop/Rap

Years Active: '90s, '00s, '10s

Raised by Jehovah's Witness parents in locales as disparate as Toronto and Trinidad, it was no surprise that Kheaven Brereton, aka k-os (pronounced: chaos) was a bit different than your average MC. A singer as well as a rhymer, and a producer to boot, k-os proved on his debut album, Exit (Astralwerks, 2002), that being preachy didn't have to mean being boring. The LP stood out dramatically with lush, instrument-driven arrangements to go with the traditional hip-hop elements of drum programming, samples,...
