I awoke this morning to one of the best radio interviews I have heard in a very long time. K-OS, the Canadian hip-hop artist otherwise known as Kevin Brereton, was the guest host of The Current on CBC Radio. The theme of the show was “The Future of Music”, with discussion ranging from Radiohead's online gambit, to celebrity trainwrecks.
The highlight, however, was certainly the interview with Dr. Cornel West.
Having just released a new album, West joined K-OS to discuss his new album, hip-hop as “edutainment”, how Kanye West wastes his obvious talent, and why Barack Obama isn't “black enough” for some of his critics.
Listen to the show over at CBC Radio.
