EDITORS’ NOTES

On his Stateside breakthrough, Toronto MC Kardinal Offishall serves up a brand of hip-hop that’s visceral and relentless, yet undeniably pop-friendly. Though the album boasts appearances by Rihanna, T-Pain, The-Dream, and Akon, Kardinal’s guests don’t overshadow his outsized personality and shout-’em-out, dancehall-influenced raps. The swerving, seductive “Dangerous” was Kardi’s first international smash, and while the thunderously percussive “Numba 1 (Tide Is High)” was written as a Toronto anthem, it’s powerful enough to rouse you with pride no matter where you are.
