Much like fellow grime originators Dizzee Rascal and Wiley, Kano released a highly acclaimed debut album during the genre's first wave circa 2003-2005, then proceeded to spend the following decades alternating between commercially oriented and underground-minded material, with varying results. While Kano has never had chart-topping hit singles like the other two, he's remained steadily popular, with all of his studio albums reaching the Top 50 of the U.K. albums chart, and he's stayed visible through frequent guest appearances (Gorillaz, Chase & Status, Lethal Bizzle) and acting roles. With 2016's Made in the Manor, his first album in six years, he refocused his energy and produced his most successful effort to date, becoming his first Top Ten-charting full-length and winning Best Album at the 2016 MOBO Awards. 2019's Hoodies All Summer is even sharper and more direct, casting off the populist tendencies of some of his earlier releases and emphasizing the emcee's aggressive, razor-sharp lyricism. Addressing problems such as inner-city violence, police brutality, and politicians' indifference to these issues, his words are frank and unsparing, yet he retains a sense of hope and levity throughout. While plenty of Kano's earlier songs were preoccupied with partying, here he references drinking and dancing as essential coping mechanisms for dealing with the ongoing struggle of city life, pledging to "pop ten bottles of escapism" on the Popcaan-featuring "Can't Hold We Down." Other songs such as "Trouble" and "SYM" (featuring the ludicrous taunt "suck your mother and die") are graced with choral vocals, gospel-tinged pianos, and even string arrangements, lending a strong sense of hope but never bogging things down with overwrought sentiments. The production, handled almost entirely by Blue May and Jodi Milliner, is consistently inventive, with jagged, abstract beat patterns befitting Kano's invigorated flows, occasionally breaking for relevant clips from news broadcasts and speeches. Longtime collaborators D Double E and Ghetts (who started out as members of the legendary N.A.S.T.Y. Crew along with Kano) show up and throw down on the brash, defiant "Class of Deja," filled with complex beats and crystalline melodies. Thoroughly inspired as well as creative, Hoodies All Summer is arguably the best work of Kano's career. ~ Paul Simpson

How Kanye West Turned Hip-hop on its Head

Over the last twenty years, Kanye West has consistently changed the course of rap music and influenced his era’s pop scene like no other. Collaborating with Paul McCartney, Rick Rubin, and Rihanna, he has both revitalized the careers of Jay-Z and Common and provided a platform for Kid Cudi and John Legend. Kanye West remains a major influence on artists such as Childish Gambino, Drake and The Weeknd. Cast yourself back to the career of an endlessly enigmatic artist.

Trip Hop in 10 Albums

At the dawn of the 90s the trip hop wave flooded Great Britain with electro influenced by Jamaican music and rap beats. With dreamy rhythms and oppressive atmospheres, Massive Attack, Portishead, Tricky, Morcheeba and various others invented a futuristic kind of dark soul music which was sometimes very cinematographic. Time to zoom in on 10 albums from a genre with a fuzzy outline but a very clear influence.

Hip-Hop: 8 Legendary Producers

Can we imagine Guru without DJ Premier and De La Soul without Prince Paul? Behind every iconic rapper and cult group, there is a visionary producer who learned from his predecessors and developed his own sound. From the pioneer Marley Marl, who laid the foundations for modern production by showing what could be done with the first samples, to the shooting star J Dilla who, before his death at the age of 32, managed to leave a lasting mark on the genre, not to forget Bomb Squad’s sonic revolution and Dr Dre’s undisputed dominance on the West Coast. Here’s an overview of the studio masters that have ruled the hip-hop world for thirty years.
