London-born rapper Kano will play his first Royal Albert Hall headline show this October as part of the Albert Sessions. Widely considered as influential in grime and British hip hop music and culture, alongside artists such as Skepta, Wiley and Dizzee Rascal, Kano will celebrate the release of his sixth studio album Hoodies All Summer with a special show at the Hall to end his October UK tour.
This first effort since 2016’s acclaimed Mercury-nominated Made In The Manor sees Kano explore a more minimal sound, bringing his lyrical prowess to the forefront. Hoodies All Summer embraces a diverse instrumentation, with strokes of hip hop and dancehall, and features appearances from Kojo Funds, Popcaan, Lil Silva, D Double E and Ghetts.
Backstage guests included Lethal Bizzle (rapper), Giggs (rapper), Nicky Slimting (film maker, DJ), Colin Francis (DJ) and Ashley Walters (rapper).
