K-OS To Open For Drake


Multi-talented rapper K-OS has announced he will be one of the opening acts on Drake's The Away From Home Tour, which is a Campus Consciousness Tour promoting eco-friendly technology.

Set to kick off on April 6 in Charleston, IL the tour will be making stops at colleges across the U.S. K-OS also has select solo dates coming up next month at Le Poisson Rouge in New York City on March 2 and The Roxy in Los Angeles on March 4. On February 22 check out K-OS co-hosting a special Black History Month episode of BET's The Deal.

The tour dates come on the heels of the hip hop visionary's fourth studio album, Yes! (Last Gang Records), which releases on February 23. With its innovative, multi-genre sound, Yes! is pure magic. Following the successful Canadian release earlier this year, K-OS' new album is already making waves in America with "4,3,2,1," the lead single off the album, of which the video can currently be seen in rotation on MTVU and on MTV2's Subterranean.

In addition to the album's first single, the release includes such standout tracks as "Burning Bridges," "I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman," and "Uptown Girl," which feature special guest collaborations from Metric's Emily Haines and Murray Lightburn from The Dears.
