Kano x Downtown

We are thrilled to announce our worldwide signing of UK Hip Hop-Grime songwriter and rapper Kano.

A two-time MOBO Award winner, Kano is considered as one of the most influential talents in British Hip Hop, and is one of the founding fathers of the Grime scene. In 2016, Kano achieved his highest chart position breaking into the UK Top Ten with the seminal and Mercury Music prize nominated ‘Made In The Manor.’

It’s been a busy few weeks for Kano with the news that he is set to be featured again in series 3 of Topboy, which Drake is executive producing. The series will air on Netflix in 2019.

“It takes a lot for me to sit down and share a pot of tea with someone. Even more to trust someone in looking after the thing i’m most precious about; my words. But Dan is different to most. He gets it. He sees it early, and then he sees its potential beyond where most people’s vision can go. We’ve been talking for years about working together and now was the time.”
- Kano

The celebrated album ‘Made In The Manor’, as well as his future collaborations and releases, will be covered under this deal.
