UK Grime veteran and all-round talent Kano has been leaving his mark on the British music scene for years now. Since his early days battling Wiley on the famous basement steps for Lord Of The Mics, to appearing in hit UK drama Top Boy, Kano has shown that you can't just put him in one box. It's been a while since we've had a solid musical project from the East London native, with drabs of free singles and releases letting us know that he's still about this music game.
The last outing from Kano was the impressive "Kings Speech" alongside fellow London emcee Ghetts, that showed his fans that he hasn't lost his touch in the past few months. Now, with summer in full swing, K-A has released another gem of a track, showcasing his gritty Grime roots alongside another Grime veteran and Boy Better Know representative JME. "Flow Of The Year" isn't a tongue in cheek dig at his fellow emcee's, more just a reminder that Kano is still one of the best of the UK scene. Backed by tough riddim that just oozes those Grime vibes, Kano gets the beat in a chokehold, spitting with terrific hunger and his silky smooth flow riding the beat to perfection. "Flow Of The Year" was also released with a B-side entitled "Dirty Die", which, like its counterpart, is another Grime banger, with another 140bpm beat being expertly tore up by Kano!
You can stream "Flow Of The Year" & "Dirty Die" below, and both of these tracks are available to download for FREE, over on his Soundcloud!
