For someone who claims to love hiphop, anti-bling rapper K-OS has a lot to complain about. He devotes so much of Joyful Rebellion to coming up with clever ways of griping about iced-out sucka MCs seeking lowest-common-denominator appeal and the system that encourages it, he seems oblivious to the fact that those issues aren't terribly important to the alternative crowd his new musical concept is targeting. Yes, that whole B-Boy Stance shtick was merely a bit of pre-release subterfuge. He's singing more than he's spitting on Joyful Rebellion - actually, there's very little hiphop at all. He's going for more of a Wyclef Jean-style crossover, which could mean a whole new career in pop music, and he may need it.
