Kano – Garage Skank

It’s been ten years since DV first dropped Kano’s huge “Nobody Don’t Dance No More” back in our radio days. Now here we are in 2015 and he’s still making big hitters.

151030 - Garage Skank

Garage Skank is definitely delivering on all fronts. The video’s pretty neat too.

Who brought metaphors in this grime shit? Kano did!
