K-os 

Yes! (Crown Loyalist)

The mantle of "favourite rapper among those who could live without rap" weighs heavily upon the bearer. k-os's 2006 offering, Atlantis, rocked the mainstream so hard, he became the personal jingle-meister at As It Happens for a while. As if to avoid being called a sellout, he's devised the remix project and "karma donation" scheme for fans and dropped a less catchy album, though it's hardly devoid of ear candy. Whether haunting chorale ("Zambony"), swirling strings ("Astronaut") or a cameo by The Dears' Murray Lightburn ('Uptown Girl"), k-os deftly stirs ingredients from every pantry. He raps, sings and makes the sonic clutter flow, mostly.
