k-os Crucifies An Ella Fitzgerald Sample In His Return Single (Audio)
More than two years removed from BLack On BLonde, k-os has returned for more. The Toronto, Ontario mainstay has built a career on waxing ill poetic on beats based upon samples by SoHo, interpolations of Greg Kihn Band, and now—Ella Fitzgerald vocals.
“Crucify” builds upon the Jazz songstress’ “It’s De-Lovely” for a joint that features charged rapping, plenty of fervor and pliable bars. From the upcoming Can’t Fly Without Gravity (August 28) album, k-os may be one of the most talented MC veterans not often mentioned in true-school Rap discussions. What do you think?
