The sphinxlike emcee Buck 65
, also known to many CBC lovers as Radio 2 Drive's host Rich Terfry
(my personal favorite alongside Laurie Brown and Tim Allen), is celebrating twenty years as a Canadian artist, hence the name of his forthcoming 2011 record: 20 Odd Years
(Warner, Canada). 20 Odd Years
will be a collection comprised of selections from Avant, Distance
(each digital EP's from 2010), and a few new tracks. It was produced by Charles Austin, Graeme Campbell and Buck 65, except for "Superstars Don't Love" produced by Jorun
and "She Said Yes", produced by Emily Wells.
"The last twenty years of my life have been stranger and more amazing than I could have imagined", Says Buck 65. "Hip hop glory and heartbreak! In 2010 & 2011, I’ll be taking a look back and forging ahead with 20 Odd Years."
Buck 65 was born in Mount Uniacke, Nova Scotia. He first heard rap on CBC Stero's late night show Brave New Waves
and the campus Halifax community radio station CKDU. CONTINUE READING (to hear "Shutterbuggin")
