Format: Audio CD
Trinidad-born, Toronto-bred Kevin Brereton - better known as K-OS - entered the game in the early 90's with a single called "Musical Essence." It was another few years before he returned with "Rise Like the Sun." The offers from the labels came, but K-OS left, disenchanted with hip-hop. Over the next few years K-OS was MIA save a few guest appearances with The Rascalz. Then just like he returned in 2002 with his debut LP "Exit." As you may guess by the title, his first was to be his last.
Maybe it was the process of making the album, maybe it was the touring, or maybe it was the endless accolades. Either way, a hiatus, be it long or permanent, was not in the cards for K-OS. The emcee/singer/musician is back with "Joyful Rebellion," an album that once again defies categorization and pigeon-holing. With a seamless blend of influences covering the spectrum of hip-hop, rock, r&b, funk, jazz, blues, reggae, ska, Latin and pop. All done with minimal programming, K-OS incorporates both the Vancouver String Orchestra and a ten piece band. K-OS not only writes and produces every song, but he plays guitar (acoustic & electric), and the keys (keyboard, piano, organ).
From the outset of the album, it is clear "Joyful Rebellion" is operating on a different level than most made these days. Fueled by a string orchestra and climactic guitar stabs K-OS proclaims an "Emcee Murdah." Despite possessing a completely different sound (reggae meets rock), "Crucial" maintains the vibe and shows off Kevin's diversity as a vocalist perhaps better than any other song. Things get even better with "The Man I Used To Be" and its MJ inspired percussion. Much like other standouts "Commadante" and "The Love Song," "The Man I Used To Be" puts K-OS' emcee skills and singing talents on full display.

I can't work out whether this or Californication is the best album I've ever heard, but without a dougbt it is the most original. K-OS is a hip hop artist but funk, jazz, rock, blues and reggae are all genres, among others, featured on this album! K-OS's 'Joyful Rebellion' is against modern hip-hop music a lot of which has become commercial and derivative. Every song is something new with no particularly weak ones. In my opinion the best tracks are Crabbuckit, which is pure funk with a bouncing beat entwined with the base line, Love Song and B-Boy Stance. Crucial offers a fantastic reggae track and some excellent jazz crops up in Papercutz.
This is a supreme album worth a hundred quid let alone ten. K-OS must be the best hip-hop artist in the world at present.

"Joyful Rebellion" is one of the best rap albums I have ever heard. Every man who listens to rap music should check out this album,expecially those who listen to underground-type rap music.

The album is really something. It grabs you from the very beggining,as you experience the philosophical meaning of each song.

The best song,in my opinion, is the track "Love Song". K-OS combines instrumental music with beat,what makes it really interesting to listen. it puts you right in there, - the Tibetian lands in China,and makes you feel the history of that wonderfull,mysterious place.The lyrics of each song are very deep and the backings are spectacular!

I suggest this album to everyone,who knows what is real rap,and real music in general.
