KANO HEADS DOWNTOWN
11/17/17



Downtown Music Publishing
 has inked one of the founding fathers of the Grime genre, prominent U.K. songwriter/rapper Kano. Kano is the first signing to Downtown from Daniel Lloyd Jones, who joined the company in August as head of A&R in the U.K. 

Kano's Made in the Manor broke the Top Ten U.K. albums chart following its 2016 release and was nominated for a Mercury Music Prize. Along with future releases and collaborations, Manor is included in the publishing deal with Downtown. 

Kano is set to be featured again in series three of Top Boy, which Drake is executive producing, and will air on Netflix in 2019.
