Interview by: Martin Bauman It's just a matter of time for Kayo right now. Having built a strong following from last year's The Escape Movement, and having learned from the likes of Snoop Dogg and Xzibit on tour, the St. Lucian emcee is all set to release his debut album with EMI/Halflife. All he has to do now is wait, which, as Kayo acknowledges, has been a challenge. In the meantime, he's been busy with other ventures. After graduating from St. Mary's University earlier this year, Kayo has been working closely with The Escape Movement clothing label and trying his hand at clothing design. The Come Up Show caught up with Kayo on tour to discuss his early career, working with The Escape Movement, and the status of his album, among other things. Read the full interview after the jump.
