Kano, or Kane Brett Robinson, is a British rapper from London whose grandparents came to the United Kingdom as immigrants from Jamaica. Kano was a key member in East London's N.A.S.T.Y. Crew. However, since signing with 679 recordings, he has stopped performing and producing tracks for the group, taking band members Demon and Ghetto with him.
His debut solo album, Home Sweet Home, was a great success across the British press. In 2005, Kano was nominated for four MOBO Awards, winning the award for Best Newcomer. On New Years Eve 2006, Mayor of London Ken Livingstone announced Kano as one of "London's Heroes of 2005". 2006 look set to be another good year for this star when he was nominated for a BRIT Award for Best Urban Act in January.
His latest album, London Town, released in September 2007, includes the eagerly-awaited single, This Is The Girl, featuring Craig David. The Album Chart Show confirmed that Kano was also working with Damon Albarn from Gorillaz and Kate Nash to produce this new album.
