Can't Fly Without Gravity captures all of the different sides that make up k- os' musical DNA. It's an affirmation that "the forces which pull you down are simply put there to inspire you to rise above them" and promises to be a more stripped- down, holistic effort than its highly conceptual predecessor, 2012's double- LP opus Black on Blonde. However, the rock- vs. rap dialectic at that album's core still guides k- os on a more philosophical level: it's not just a question of reconciling disparate musical styles, but of differing workflow strategies.
For k-os, his ideal position is below the radar. All the other stuff that happens and the fame is an illusion, and sometimes the illusion is so big that it starts to affect who you are as a person, and that’s why I’d be the best-kept secret. I think Can’t Fly Without Gravity, hopefully, is the new way for people to look at, at least in the hip-hop community, the negativity that happens when you try to transcend the forces that pull you down.

The twitchy funkster Dance in Yo Car sounds like Prince when he’s uptempo and poignant, and somehow, they found a way to jam strings into this wonderful rave-up
Fans of K-os's famed eclecticism will not be disappointed by Can't Fly Without Gravity, the Toronto hip-hopper's sixth studio album. This new effort has a greater breadth of styles than anything else in his adventurous catalogue. It all kicks off with "Snapback," a jazz-infused slow-burner akin to - and every bit as fun as - his 2002 hit "Heaven Only Knows
