Skepta’s New Single is a ‘Shutdown’
Listen to the Grime legend’s new release here...
Grime king Skepta has dropped the highly anticipated visuals for ‘Shutdown’.
The single is a signature Skepta sounding track, reminding me of the musical direction the UK rapper displayed on ‘Microphone Champion’. Produced by the man himself, alongside Ragz Originale, the duo sampled Drake’s ‘Trusss me daddi.’ Vine that was released earlier this year.
Perhaps a returned favour to Drake for referencing ‘That’s Not Me’ on ‘Used To’ with Lil Wayne? The track itself came out shortly after Kanye's major bring-in to the Grime scene at the Brits, inviting a number of heavyweights on stage with him to perform 'All Day'. Since then there's been a mass increase of US/UK collaborations including the most recent Krept & Konan/Rick Ross link up. Shutdown is a major teaser for fans who are eagerly waiting on the release of 'Konnichiwa'.
