Kano is quite clearly legendary for the culture, you can just tell from the way he rhymes and what he has to say, but my main issue with Hoodies All Summer is how choppy and awkward it can sound. Every single beat is fantastic, every verse is cold and the hooks are great, so what's the problem? The album doesn't feel cohesive, there are moments where it sounds like Kano ... read more

Grime artists are doing their thing this year. Still waiting on that Stormzy project.

Year of grime?

Edit: Teardrops and Good Youtes Walk Amongst Evil really grew on me. Rest tracks not too memorable.

This was decent but honesty what is with the critics hard ons with grime this year, Dave and little simz both had good albums but high 80s to 90s no way
