SKEPTA – HYPOCRISY

Not content with launching his own clothing line, Mains, Skepta releases ‘Hypocrisy’, a track aimed at those who disrespect him online but turn on the charm in person.  The beat doesn’t sound dissimilar to some of those on his Mercury Prize-winning album ‘Konnichiwa‘; perhaps it’s an off-cut from the project.  Stream below via SoundCloud.

SKEPTA – NO SECURITY [VIDEO]

Skepta released ‘No Security’ last Halloween, but returns to the post-‘Konnichiwa‘ cut with an extra verse and a new video.  The Tottenham MC pops up in some odd locations in a strange variety of outfits.  The track follows Skepta’s BRIT Awards performance last week, at which he didn’t take home a single award despite being…

SKEPTA – COMING SOON

Skepta’s ‘Konnichiwa‘ has been out in the world barely a few month’s but it seems the Tottenham MC is already working on a new project.  New track ‘Coming Soon’ features ILoveMakkonan and Céon as well as the man himself; and judging by the overall tone it wouldn’t be unreasonable to suggest that whatever is on its…

SKEPTA – KONNICHIWA

Grime fans have been waiting a long time for ‘Konnichiwa’, but the new album from Skepta is finally upon us.  Featuring the singles ‘Ladies Hit Squad‘, ‘Man‘, ‘Shutdown‘ and ‘That’s Not Me‘, the album also packs features from the likes of Stormzy, Pharrell Williams, Wiley, JME and more.  Much is being made of Grime’s newfound status…

SKEPTA – MAN

After revealing the tracklist and cover art to upcoming album ‘Konnichiwa’ [May 6], Skepta releases new track ‘Man’.  “I don’t know why man’s calling me family all of a sudden / My mum don’t know your mum, stop telling man you’re my cousin” – the track is an ode to staying humble in the face of unwanted…

JAMMER – BARS

Boy Better Know’s Jammer releases the factually-titled ‘Bars’.  On the track, Jammer accuses other MCs of hiding behind big hooks.  ‘Bars’ sees Jammer lead by example, spitting for the duration almost uninterrupted.  The Twenty8Hurtz-produced instrumental pairs brilliantly with the dark visual, which centres around an ominously backlit performance from the Grime veteran.  Stream below via YouTube, click here to download from iTunes.

WILEY – STANDBY

Boy Better Know’s Wiley releases ‘Standby’, an up-tempo Grime track to let us know he’s always ready for a clash.  Coincidentally, the track dropped on the same day that Wiley was forced to cancel a scheduled performance at Bestival – or perhaps ‘Standby’ was released by way of appeasing fans.  Either way, stream below via SoundCloud.
