In 2016, acclaimed British rapper Kano returned to the fray with ‘Made In The Manor’, his most ambitious, most lyrically adventurous, most audacious, most moving, and, dare we say it, most important body of work to date.
Coming over ten years after the release of his debut album ‘Home Sweet Home’, ‘Made In The Manor’ is as much a love letter to his East End roots as it is a forensic portrayal of inner city England today, with just the merest hint of dark prophecy about what trouble may lie round the corner…
The album takes its title from the track ‘T-Shirt Weather In The Manor’. It’s a vivid portrait of an East London childhood recounted over a plaintive piano refrain. It’s a song that reflects the album’s core themes – family, friendships and how those relationships evolve over time.
