I saw k-os live last night - very good show. Something about hip-hop with a band is extremely gratifying (see: The Roots), maybe because it validates hip-hop as a true musical form of expression.
Anyway, the show began with the song "B-Boy Stance", but the second track he performed was... Liquid Swords. I couldn't believe that shit - he started belting out "When the emcees came...." - I almost lost it. And the band was playing the beat.... sounded sick. He did the whole first verse... it was amazing.
Props to k-os for representing true hip-hop.
