When we saw Skepta take to the stage at Boom Bap Festival last weekend, he’d just received the news that his close friend Luke Maxwell had been murdered that day in North London.  Having dedicated his set to his late friend, Skepta releases ‘Lukey World’, a solemn tribute to Maxwell.  Over off-kilter Grime production, Skepta’s bars are tinged with sadness throughout; “Supposed to be grieving, but instead I’m in the hood with the whole team scheming”.  Stream below via SoundCloud.
