From ‘Top Boy’ to ‘Hoodies All Summer,’ the East London MC is ready for a new chapter.

It’s been three years since Kano released Made in the Manor, but the East London rapper is getting ready for a busy end to 2019. After releasing his first four projects in five years and establishing himself as a central figure in grime’s first wave, Kano took a six-year break between 2010’s Method to the Maadness and its follow up. Now though, major projects are stacking up. In addition to launching his new album Hoodies All Summer, Kano is also set to reprise his role in Top Boy’s much-heralded

The Return of Kano

on July 18, 2019 - 11:44am

The actor and rapper's back with a new album, due out in August, and shares a filmic video on serious youth violence exclusively with us.

I'm sat in the dining room area of a central London hotel with rapper and actor – nah, actually, legend – Kano. It’s been three years since his last (MOBO winning, Mercury nominated) album Made In The Manor. So we’re here, with the sun beating through glass windows, for his first music interview in a good couple of years, and to discuss his next step.
