Kano offered ITN his thoughts on musical partnerships and the guys from British boy band JLS. “If I’m making music that isn’t the in thing on the radio, I’m not gonna change,” the rapper said. “I’m going to continue to make the music that I feel is right for me. Sometimes I feel like I’ve been a little bit ahead of the scene where I come from. I was experimenting with different sounds at a time where everybody said it has to be grime.” Watch the comments via YouTube below.
