Review: Kannaman – Out The Trap (+ ‘Been Told’ Video)

In Grime, Hip Hop by Mxrtlxck

Peterborough’s resident top mic man Kannaman comes with this new project ‘Out The Trap.’ From the intro to the outro this project is pure flames holding it down solo on all of the tracks except one feature by Manchester’s Take Note Tox.

Kannaman first appeared with former grime collective ‘Roadworks’ in their video for ‘Take Off’ and was an instant local favourite. From there, he was up on radio shows, releasing solo videos and was very nearly featured clashing Uncle Dreama on LOTM.

Having up’s and down’s in his career has never held Kannaman back or changed his persona, always thinking of the fans as shown with the variety of genres he uses on the project.

‘Been Told’ is an example of Kannaman’s raw energy and matured mind state, mixed with flow and lyrical content – something this project is far from lacking. Take Note Tox features on ‘Dutty Drop’ as the only featuring artist on the project and ate the beat up only adding to Kanna’s presence. With tracks like ‘Legal Life’ and ‘Dreams’ the tone is lowered showing the multiple sides to the person behind these bangers. The project gets a solid 4.5/5 scoring for the project, the only downfall is it leaves you wanting more!
