London rapper Kano has just shared a behind-the-scenes mini documentary, giving fans a closer look at the process behind creating his latest studio album HOODIES ALL SUMMER.

Coming in at 13-and-a-half-minutes, the clip showcases Kano traveling between London and Jamaica as he visits various studios while recording the aforementioned project. Producers Jodi Milliner and Blue May are also featured prominently in the docu, which in turn gives fans more insight into how the album’s tracks, such as “Trouble,” came about. Additionally the footage includes appearances from HOODIES ALL SUMMER collaborators Kojo Funds and D Double E. The documentary was filmed on Alexa Mini and Sony hi8 cameras, along with footage captured on personal phones.

Kano goes on to explain, “As an artist, it’s part of my job to talk about the times we’re living in. I didn’t want to approach certain topics on this album as if I was talking down to people. I’m rooted in the street, I’m connected to the street, I’m from these communities but I have distance — I’m over here but we’re on the same level.” Check it out in full above.

HOODIES ALL SUMMER released in 2019 and marks Kano‘s sixth studio album and his first since 2016’s Made In The Manor. The artist will embark on his HOODIES ALL SUMMER tour at the end of this month, which includes stops in Cardiff, London, Manchester, and other major cities across the UK.

Kano also recently starred in Netflix’s revival of Top Boy. In case you’ve missed it check out our feature: “Kano Is Speaking to a New Generation.”
