Kano returns with his most important body of work to date. The 15-track album Made In The Manor was recorded in London in 2015, produced by Fraser T Smith, Rustie, Mele, Mikey J, Blue May, Zeph Ellis and Swifta Beater, and released by Parlophone.
‘You have to know where youve come from in order to know where youre going’, says the acclaimed British rapper about the release of Made In The Manor. ‘But I like to take where Ive come from along with me for the ride.’
Made In The Manor is as much a love letter to his East End roots as it is an intimate portrayal of inner city England today, with just the merest hint of dark prophecy about what trouble could lie round the corner. Kano, who is never anything other than candid, says:
‘This is the most honest Ive ever been on an album. Its not that I wasnt being honest before, its just that I wasnt speaking about things this personal before.’
