But it's a slightly awkward interview...

Kano has appeared on Hot 97.

The rapper's new album 'Hoodies All Summer' is out now, an exceptional return from a true great.

Recently appearing in Top Boy, it's been an incredible year for Kano, who seems to be in a phenomenal creative space.

Sitting down with Ebro on Hot 97, it's another landmark, but we offer it up with some reservations.

The conversation touches on some misgivings American audiences have with regards to grime, with Kano being lectured on "cultural mis-steps" within the UK rap community.

It's incredible to see Kano on such an important platform, but if we're honest from Hot 97's perspective this is a chance missed.

Anyway, check it out now.
