Legendary grime MC Kano premièred two new tracks last night on Mistajam’s 1Xtra show.
The first, ‘Flow of the Year’, is produced by and features Boy Better Know co-founder JME. The second, ‘Dirty Die (KING KONG Riddim)’, is produced by Melé.
The tracks continue the tradition of Kano’s sporadic single releases since he dropped the Jack Bauer 2.4 mixtape on New Year’s Day 2012, but we’ll allow it because he’s been driving around in a Benz for a Mercedes advert and killing it as character Sully in Channel 4 drama Top Boy.
With the grime scene currently enjoying a resurrection, maybe now is the time for one of the best MCs to return. Hopefully we’ll see more from Kano soon.
