CKMS Community Connections for 11 May 2020

Bel-lig-er-ent | belijerent / (adjective) 1. hostile and aggressive (album cover by Kwazzi) I would have had Toronto Hiphop artist Kwazzi in the studio today, but we’re still closed for the Covid pandemic. So I’m playing a brand new track Handouts, as well as some tracks from his Belligerent album. Say it with me: “Kwa-Zay”! He’s addicted to Instagram, so check him out at @therealkwazzi.


Attract Hazard | Sam Nabi (album cover) Sam Nabi  crouches in front of some plants an dhis stereo I’m also featuring local Kitchener Hiphop artist Sam Nabi, with some tracks from his new album Attract Hazard. You can find Sam and his music on Bandcamp.

And to round out the hour, there’s a bunch of new (to me) CanCon music from Indigenous artists in the Nikamowin catalogue.
