Video: Kardinal Offishall, “Anywhere (Ol Time Killin Part 2)”

Words by Jesse Serwer

When Kardinal Offishall dropped the audio for “Anywhere (Ol Time Killin) Part 2” back in July, it immediately had us digging in the crates and re-visiting all of Kardi’s raggamuffin hip-hop classics, including, of course, the original “Ol Time Killin” from 2001. Toronto’s original crossover MC has always put every ounce of his Jamaican-ness into his hip-hop, dropping reggae samples and straight-up dancehall tunes on just about all of his albums. The upcoming Mr. International figures to be no different, especially with “Anywhere,” a big tune on a soundbwoy-crushing beat blending the classic dancehall riddims Sleng Teng and Death in the Arena, as its lead single. For the visuals, Kardi plays mustard yellow suit-clad host, inviting us into a good, ol’ time basement bashment. Nothing new about that, but that’s sorta the point.
