Kano drops the year’s most authentic visual with “Trouble”
Kano is back with a bang. The grime forefather released a 17-minute long short film entitled “Trouble” revolving around the murder of a young man in London, and the subsequent wake and funeral celebrating his life. It’s an emotional and powerful story, but one that’s necessary to tell and especially by somebody of Kano’s calibre.
One of the greatest artistic minds in British music history, Kano operates on a different level to everyone else around him, but still doesn’t forget his roots. Two new songs were featured in the short film, one being “Trouble” –a soulful sounding track filled with lyricism about feelings, thoughts, and actions that happen within the ends. The opening verse starts with “all our mothers worry when we touch the roads, cause they know it’s touch and go whether we’re coming home”, it’s a simple yet effective and truthful line from Kano and is something he’s been able to do well for years.
The second track premiered is Class of Deja, featuring D Double E and Ghetts and it is undisputedly one of the hardest tracks the scene has produced in years, and truthfully how could it not be with the talent on show? Within the short film, this track gets several reloads, and it’s definitely something that would happen at any grime set this gets performed at. It’s a perfect grime track, although studio produced the second verse between Kano and Ghetts sounds like it’s taken from a radio set in the 2000s.
Both tracks will feature on the album Hoodies All Summer, set to be released on August 30th, Kano’s first album since the critically acclaimed “Made in the Manor“. Alongside the release date, both the artwork and tracklist have been released too and at 10 tracks long you can be assured there’ll be no filler on the album and the guests also include Popcaan, KojoFunds, and LilSilva. Make sure to watch “Trouble” above, and pre-order the album too!
