Shad – Rose Garden Feat. Von Pea & Donwill (Tanya Morgan) (Prod. T-Lo)
One of the greatest Canadian hip hop albums of all time,” declared Exclaim! of The Old Prince, the 2nd release by Shad. The MC-guitarist was first noted in en 2004 after winning a radio contest and is now firmly established as an artist, with critical acclaim and Juno and Polaris nominations. He brings us a live band, featuring raps less concerned with bling than humour, spirit (The Old Prince Still Lives at Home) and deeplysourced clarity (I’ll Never Understand). Remarkable.

k-os’ socially aware raps and heartfelt melodies captured the imagination of the widest range of music fans and critics on his debut Exit. So what does he do for an encore? On Joyful Rebellion, the much anticipated follow-up, k-os elevates his clever rhyme skills and keen sense of musicianship, concocting an even more unique brew of protest music that simultaneously appeals to crossover and rap purist audiences.
There is good reason to believe that this Toronto-bred emcee/vocalist is about to take the rap world by storm. Even with his first album, k-os was fielding personal invites to tour in North America and Europe with Grammy winners such as India.Arie, The Roots and Nelly Furtado, as well as rap luminaries De La Soul. He also collaborated with The Chemical Brothers on their “Get Yourself High” hit, while his video for “Superstarr Pt. Zero” was rated Next and Buzz-worthy by both BET and MTV. Even more impressive was k-os winning “International Album of the Year” honors at The 2003 Source Awards. This marked a watershed moment for contemporary hip hop. For once, music mattered more than where an emcee hailed from, and it proved that consumers hadn’t lost their ability to discern real talent from media hype.
While commercial rap has pushed some of the music’s brightest lights into flight or fight mode, it’s clear that on Joyful Rebellion, k-os intentionally chose the latter. “Hip hop is an abandoned ship, and its vanguards are moving on to other things,” admits k-os. “Everyone wants to be a rock star, because they don’t know how to take hip hop to the next level.”
k-os is at the forefront of the generation of rap artists who are pushing the limits of hip hop culture (i.e. Andre 3000 of Outkast, Missy Elliot). He has even added to his musical repertoire by playing guitar and piano on a few of the new songs. Much like Lauryn Hill, the artist he’s often compared to, this album is a testament to his rare ability to harmonize and emcee, ignoring any creative straitjackets imposed on him by narrow rap or R&B categorizations. Though k-os may be compared to many great artists, his versatility makes it almost impossible to truly compare him to any.
Produced and written by k-os, Joyful Rebellion draws heavily from and seamlessly fuses together the full range of musical experience; from rap to jazz, rock and pop, blues and reggae, and everything in between. Even with all of these flavors, Joyful Rebellion is stripped down and raw like his thoughts and raps. The acoustic guitars, tablas, classical strings and drum kicks all provide the right ingredients for this creative masterpiece.
k-os comments on the meaning behind the album title, saying, “Joyful Rebellion is about knowing that living the truth in life, you have to sort of rebel against the system, but at the same time you want to be happy about it. If the key in music is to reach out to a lot of people and to have them get down with your ideas and philosophies, why would you want to make it something that wasn’t joyful?”

Muzion – La vi ti neg
Muzion (pronounced mew-zigh-on) are Impossible, J. Kyll and Dramatik. They represent Montréal (Québec) and the fact that they live in a world where French and English are spoken side by side also shows in their lyrics which consist in great part of French, but with some very noticeable insertions of English phrases. – Just as they come out, it seems. On top of that, they draw on their Haitian background using Kreyol in their lyrics as well. The result is a powerful and heartfelt language mixture that just flows effortlessly. But that’s not enough. They also have quite a bit to say and it becomes clear that they take their time crafting their lyrics and arranging their beats that continue to win people’s hearts on both sides of the Atlantic.
