Inuk hip hop artist M.O.’s new album String Games – a collaboration with Geothermal MC – continues to explore the contemporary urban Inuit life that filled his first CD. He raps about issues that are close to him – identity, northern politics and, in this track featuring Kinnie Starr, suicide. He’s not one to mince words and while he may shoot straight for the heart, his lyrics are crafted with a frankness that avoids cliché and melodrama. The result is intelligent, provocative and moving work.
