Canada’s rap scene is starting to pick up a lot of steam in recent years and while we’re still super excited for the upcoming Drake album, we have yet another talented artist to add to the ranks in the Great White North.
Meet Kayo, a Halifax-based rapper who is actually considered by many as Classified’s protégé. The rapper is now prepping to release a new nine-song EP called S.L.A.V.E., which actually stands for Serenity Lives Around Virtuous Energy, and you can check it out now on MUCH’s First Spins page.
The songs on S.L.A.V.E. reveal Kayo to be a smart, conscious rapper as he discusses his struggles to find his place in the hip hop scene within Canada and North America in general. Tracks are honest, yet shows finesse and a real skill for pairing thoughtful lyrics and good beats. Definitely a rapper to keep your eyes peeled for in the future.
