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…

SKEPTA – LADIES HIT SQUAD [FT. D DOUBLE E & A$AP NAST]

Skepta debuted new single on Drake’s Beats 1 OVO Sound Radio show, and how makes good on his promise to release the track’s official video.  The track features bars from fellow Grime legend D Double E, and vocals from A$AP Nast.  The washed-out, syrupy production comes from Skeppy himself, while the 80s Miami visuals come courtesy…

WILEY – ON A LEVEL

Over the course of his career, Wiley’s output has varied from genre to genre, but on new track ‘On A Level’ he takes things back to his Grimey roots.  Over a dirty beat that with so much garage influence it couldn’t have come from anywhere other than the UK, Wiley delivers bars as brilliantly simple as…
