Rapper Kano: ‘What music did for me was gave me a voice’

Kano started his career as a rapper on a pirate radio station in London. Since then – Kano has released five albums – becoming one of the country’s most critically acclaimed artists.

After a three year absence he’s back with his new album ‘Hoodies All Summer’ which has a distinctly political tone.

Symeon Brown went to speak to the grime pioneer. They talked amongst other things about how the windrush scandal affected his family – and why he thinks the government response to knife violence is inadequate.
