|k-os singles chronology|
"Crabbuckit" is a single by Canadian hip hop musician k-os, released in 2004 as a single from his album Joyful Rebellion. The title and work refers to the crab in the bucket syndrome where a group of crabs will pull down any crab that tries to escape, thereby ensuring their collective demise.
k-os walks down streets in Toronto, wearing sunglasses that allow him to see individual people who are crabs in disguise and he performs in a club. Both Nelly Furtado and Red1 (from Rascalz) make a brief cameo appearance in the music video. Nelly Furtado can be seen playing guitar in front of a house block and Red1 can be seen in the bar sitting beside k-os.
The single reached number 23 on the Canadian Singles Chart. The video also made No. 1 on the MuchMusic Countdown for two weeks in 2004. The song was also named the 37th greatest Canadian song of all time in the 2005 CBC Radio series 50 Tracks: The Canadian Version.
