K-OS: I Wish I Knew Natalie Portman – 2010 – Single review + Video

Rating: ★☆☆☆☆

For the last half decade the faithful have been wandering (and wondering), lost, through the sterile and largely funk-free desert which the realm of hip-hop has become, beset by the evil, ketamine-fuelled dubstep hordes and occasionally crossing paths with isolated and increasingly rare defenders of the truly phat flame.
