Words Of…: Citizen Kane – "Deliverance"

hyperadmin | Words Of... | Saturday, October 24th, 2009


Hard to believe, but it’s been ten years since Citizen Kane issued one of Canadian hip-hop’s most consistent end-to end long players in the form of Deliverance.

Lead MC J-Spade, along with Rob Blye wrote lyrics with enviable emotional range on this release over some impressive production by Fin-S. An added dimension to the record after its release was the award-winning NFB film Raisin’ Kane directed by respected director Alison Duke that detailed the trials and tribulations of making, releasing and promoting the record. Here’s an album review I wrote for the November 1999 issue of Exclaim! and “Soldier Story,” one of the many standout tracks from Deliverance.

  2. Easiest way i can think of is to head down to the NFB centre near Queen and John if you’re in Toronto. I am pretty sure you can watch it there for free.
