Kano • Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip #288

Welcome, welcome, welcome to episode 288 of the Distraction Pieces Podcast with Scroobius Pip! A powerful get together this week as Pip sits down with rapper actor kingpin KANO!


A really fun and engaging sit-down with the two, as Pip catches Kano in the midst of a promo run which leads us nicely into the whole thing - from the cycle beginning and ending (and then beginning again), his time served at the notorious Deja Vu station back in the day, teaming up with Mike Skinner and the inspiration Mike had on his live shows (along with dancehall culture in Jamaica), his brother getting him into DJing and emceeing, roots beyond grime, not being scared of ‘off’ days, getting in the zone in the studio, being tuned into society and understanding the mechanics of it, speaking truth to power, addressing problems on wax, conversations through music, importance of sport and non musical activities, being in a computer game, going HAM on his fourth callback for Top Boy, practice making perfect and rehearsing for his Royal Albert Hall show! Pop ten bottles of escapism for this one - get very involved!


Pip Outro Thoughts: sneaky backtrack edit involving a Ghetts thing you should peep - Louis Theroux up next week!
