Toronto, ON, Canada

Title: WiLD4TheNight (EgoLand)

Genre: HipHop

For his new single and video, “WiLD4TheNight (EgoLand)”—the first teaser from his upcoming sixth album, Can’t Fly Without Gravity, due out in 2015 on Dine Alone Records—that meant returning to his roots in Trinidad, the south Caribbean island nation from which his family hails and where the young k-os lived for three (not entirely pleasant) years. “I hated it!” he recalls with a laugh. “As a Canadian kid, I didn’t understand it. My Canadian accent set me apart from kids there—they used to say ‘Yankee go home’ and stuff like that. I didn’t fit in.”
