k-os – “Spaceship”

blame it on Shake July 27, 2015

Our Canadian homie k-os continues to bless those smart enough to listen with gem after gem. A couple weeks removed from sharing the life and career sacrifices he’s made on the Ella Fitzgerald-sampling “Crucify,” the emcee/producer is on to greener pastures with his uplifting and personal new single, “Spaceship.”

“I was initially scared to release this song – it was supposed to be on my last record, Black On Blonde, but I was too shook to release it,” k-os told OKP. “It’s a vulnerable tune. Sometimes in rap you always wanna present the hardest most secure side of yourself. So when you create a track that embodies a child like essence it’s confusing simply because you’re not a child anymore. At the end of it all ‘Spaceship’ takes me back to the record JoyfuL RebelLion – before I was known and before I had an image to protect. It’s like a short biography of my rap life. And even though it’s not the hardest or darkest track in the world, fact is human beings aren’t always hard and dark. How would you know what was dark If you didn’t experience the light? A knife can’t cut itself.”

“Spaceship” will live on k-os’ upcoming album, Can’t Fly Without Gravity, dropping August 28th via Dine Alone Records. The tracklist can be seen below and pre-orders are available on iTunes.
