As we draw closer to the end of 2011, one of the UK’s premier MCs Kano is preparing to kick off ‘012 with the release of the second installment in his Jack Bauer mixtape series. After a stellar year which saw the 26 year old rapper make his scene stealing acting debut in the critically acclaimed gritty Channel 4 drama Top Boy (which has already been renewed for a second season), release a weekly multiplatform music series with producer Mikey J entitled Not 4 The A List, drop the Girls Over Guns mixtape as well as a host of guest feature appearances, Kano is set to release his latest mixtape Jack Bauer 2.4 on New Years Day (01/01/12) at 1PM GMT for free download.
According to Mikey J who helped Kano put together and mix the latest mixtape “Jack Bauer 2.4 for me is one of or the best Kano mixtape I have ever done/worked on and listened to.”
With that being said we are proud to premiere this cut entitled “2012 Was A Good Year” which sees Kane kicking verses over Drake‘s Just Blaze produced “Lord Knows” beat. “I don’t look back that much, I stay forward thinking since Home Sweet Home. But I want to say 2012 was a good year.” – Kano
