So I was pretty excited when I woke up this morning. The sun was out, the birds were chirping and my girlfriend cooked me breakfast. I went in to my local record shop to by the new k-os album today, as has been the tradition with every new k-os release, only to find it NOWHERE. Frantically, I went to the emo kid behind the cash register asking for Yes! He looked at me with those ‘I just partied all night last night and went home with a tranny’ eyes and said, “uhhh, that’s not coming out until April 14th now.” APRIL 14TH????? GOD, HOW HAST THOU FORSAKEN ME????
I went online, and went to k-os’ official site. Surely I could prove this kid wrong. Alas, with no apology or even real recognition of the push back, in a sentence talking about some promotion, they mention the fact the album is coming out two weeks from now. I even checked out your MySpace page. Nothing there either.
Thanks a lot k-os. You’ve already lowered my expectations of this album. I was holding out, hoping that 4-3-2-1 was just a victim of ‘first single syndrome’, but now I’m really questioning whether or not this will fill my need for quality conscious hip hop.
Anyway, here’s some old k-os to cheer me up. I hope it cheers you up too.
