a kani is an Australian term describing a sort of a young yobo. they like 50 cent, eminem etc and act all tough. They wear 'KANI' brand clothes, which is were the word comes from. These clothes are very shiny, think Ali G. They travel in BMX bikes, and favourite activities include smoking, vandalising. And once old enough to get a car they put a sik bodykit on their falcon/commodore with a big subwoofer and muffler. The Kanis age range is blured as its from about 6 to mid 20s, after this they become yobos.
