Kyprios – The Lapdog [EP] [Review]


Vancouver, BC – With sizzling hot rhymes and funky fresh beats, the multifaceted Kyprios releases his new EP, The Lapdog. Collaborating with a live band, The Chaperones, Kyprios brings a fresh sound that you didn’t even know you missed.


The album starts off with the title track (and possibly the best), “Lap Dog”; a track that is reminiscent of his earlier sounds of 2008. “City Woman” is the sunshine that Raincouver rarely sees; if Shaggy and Bob Marley produced a song together, this would be it. On “We Get Right” Kyprios takes an unexpected turn to the darker alleys of Vancouver’s downtown eastside: “The needle, the bottle, I get it, we ain’t all angels/ Who are you to tell me what’s the difference between a saint and an angel”. Kyp then lets the listener chill out to “Aint Gonna Get Me” where he once again shows off his fine-tuned vocals. Finally, he concludes the project with the edgy “Bad Motherfucker” where he fuses elements of rock with his funky hip-hop style.

After one listen, it becomes obvious as to why Kyprios has such a strong presence in the Canadian hip-hop scene. The Lapdog is a testament of his ability to create a crisp and innovative sound without falling into the mainstream hype. We’ll definitely be counting down the days till his next project! Check out The Lapdog here.
