UK rapper Kano released this full length doc about his critically-acclaimed album Hoodies All Summer.
The LP captures the highs and lows of life in London’s gritty East End. Kano wanted to show people the nicer sides of the area but wanted to remind people of the crime and poverty that has blighted it for decades. In the doc, it’s revealed that he took a “10,000” hours approach to making the record, sometimes spending over a year writing just one song.
What’s interesting though is that for the single Class Of Deja featuring veteran MCs D Double E and Ghetts the song was made within an extremely short time period. The song was a homage to the old pirate radio sets that were popular in London in the early 2000s. This was their way of recapturing the raw energy that the rappers gave off during those fierce sessions. We also get to see how Kano went about putting the rest of the album together and how he recorded some of the best tracks that he’s made so far in his career.
