Risskant always stays busy. He began his fourth album just one month after releasing his 3rd solo in Jan
of 2009. This new project was a unique, bilingual, international cooperation between Canada and the
Netherlands with Anonymouz, created during his tours of the Netherlands. Featuring some of the top
producers in the country, the project received much attention and was also instrumental in helping Riss
to branch out overseas.
Riss’s latest release is a collaboration project with king producer, Benzie, featuring a cast of some of the
top MCs in the Netherlands. Check it, available for download on risskant.nl.
