Kano – Jay-z co-sign

Thursday, November 11th, 2010

From Soul Culture a quick interview with Kano regarding Jay-z comments about how he is rating Kano. I love how humbling his response is, if this had happened to most U.K MC’s their ego’s would of shot through the roof!

Nice to know I share the same opinion on one thing than one of the world’s greatest!

Semtex – Jay-z Interview

Saturday, November 6th, 2010

Jay-z is a massive influence on myself, he is just one these people that I can listen all day always got something to say! Anyway have a listen to the below interview from DJ Semtex’s 1xtra Hip Hop Show interesting listen!

Points of interest for me…

  • Talking about Radio being Stale and stations chasing Big Record’s instead of mixing things up a little! …
  • Talking about the Kanye/Jigga collab album (massivley looking forward to this even more so My Dark Twisted Fantasy)
  • Him recognising Kano as one of the U.K top talents!

New Kano – Rock N Rolla

Thursday, August 6th, 2009


Kano is back with a new single should you be excited or not? I’ve listened a few times and I still can’t decide whether its good or not…This got its world premiere last night over on 1xtra courtesy of Mistajam. First impression was that it took a while to kick in but once it did it was a banger production is sick… 2nd listen I wasn’t so sure. My opinion changes with every listen maybe its a grower?

5 UK MC's

Monday, May 11th, 2009

In my opinion UK does it best when it comes to hip hop/grime/urban music. So I thought it would be a good idea to do a post on what I view as some of the better UK acts. These 5 are in no particular order just 5 MC’s that I think deserve some regonition….


Kano – 140 Grime Street

Friday, October 17th, 2008

I’m a massive Kano fan and have all of his albums and mixtapes so I listened to his work from the start to now. There was a lot of hype about this album and I wasn’t too sure what to expect from this project.
