  • Buck 65 is a rapper from Nova Scotia who uses hip-hop as a starting point for his laid-back, low-pitched poetic flows. There is something about Buck 65's efforts that, while not "lo-fi," are certainly not following any current, excessive production trends. Tracks like "Dang" could even be construed as power-pop, albeit in an alternate universe where such music blended effortlessly with R&B.
