which is quite a different sound than EXIT, But K-os has plesantly supprised me, if you think that this could be appealing read on...
From playing this at my house and in my car people (mainly my friends) think that K-os singing his hooks or voice-overs is R&B are sorely mistaken, This along with REAL instruments, thought provoking vocals, and tight drum paterns sums up REAL hip hop. I admit to sleeping on K-os for a while given that most Canadian rappers till him have not impressed me to the point of purchasing the album. Till I heard "Freeze"; a slick rick inspired drum pattern lays foundation to a battle oriented ryme. The track will make your moms nod her head, no doubt. What really caught me was how K-os (real name Kheaven Brereton) mixes authentic musical instruments, dope drums, and his lyricism is second to none. Clearly seen in "Neutroniks" - a really, really dope song. He swtiches his style to fit each pause, building up to the beat dropping again. His ability to ride a beat, spit knowladge, and though I despise R&B; his beats and voice I believe go beyond that genere. K-os has really refreshed me in the sense that he is doing what others are either intimidated to do b/c lack of support / being dissed, or cant do because they lack tallent of MR. Brereton a genuinly complete album.

However, socially conscious Canadian rapper K-os may bring an awakening to the familiar rap paradigm with his debut album Exit. Having had his start singing hooks for other rappers, K-os (born Kevin Brereton) quickly found himself bitten by the rap bug and compelled to put his own thoughts and experiences onto paper. Though his early attempts at rapping were received poorly, probably due to love-lyric overkill the rapper admits, K-os continued to grow and improve his music, eventually catching the ear of music entrepreneur and ex-Detroit Piston John Salley, and landing a deal with Astralwerks Records and EMI.
Blending the eclectic goodness of the Fugees with tribal funk grooves of Native Tounge-ers like A Tribe Called Quest and Jungle Brothers, and a love for Hip-Hop that would rival even the most zealous member of the Zulu Nation, Exit is not an album to be taken lightly. At its heart, the album is a sharp, soulful effort that opens the door to new possibilities in Hip-Hop music.

With the acoustic "Heaven Only Knows", K-os raps to a beat-less track. Just problems and things about him that heaven only know about.
With the reggae beat and booming bass in "Superstarr Part 1", K-os sings how someone got so low when they're a superstar.
Yet another guitar with a simple beat, K-os sings about needing "Patience" and soon understanding.
Going into the country vibe, K-os sings "Superstarr, Pt. 2" in the same context as part 1. This is more of a softer side of Kheaven.
With a house beat and simple piano chords, K-os raps and sings this track the truth about so many things in "Superstarr, Part Zero".
Kheaven is the beginning of hip-hop and the start of reality without talking about bling or who's ho that is and how big that is and without profanity. I could care less if you cuss or not but if you can bring a message in your music without cussin' and you're a rapper, that's when everyone grows up.
Other ear openers:
Heaven Only Knows (Remix)
Please get this album, it's the start of real hip-hop and certainly not the end.
