A good mixtape always fits the bill for Friday Fun, and I think we’ve got a good one here. Perhaps many of you have already sampled the offerings on k-os’ Anchorman Mixtape, but if you haven’t, I’m here to point you towards pleasure town. Oh we’re going there.
Seriously, I’m not sure I can talk about this mixtape without cramming in about 15 more Anchorman quotes. I know I’m far from alone, but I’m afraid I won’t ever tire of Anchorman - it is perhaps Will Ferrell’s premier performance where he essentially does nothing but the “Will Ferrell voice” for an entire movie. Anyhoo, there’s certainly plenty of goodness on offer here from my friend k-os: catchy bangers like opener Start Me Up and CBC radio favorite Dance in YO Car, and collabos with folks like Canadian legend Saukrates, Sebastien Grainger, and Drake! Man the kids love that Drake, and how can you argue with the kids? k-os certainly isn’t about to, so he’s taken the “can’t beat ‘em, join ‘em approach” with Canada’a latest (first?) US rap-scene-conquering phenom. And the whole thing is tied together with the Scotch-soaked wisdom of Ron Burgundy, it’s a winning combo.
HEY-O, I’m very aroused. I told you that was going to happen. Enjoy.
