Skepta‘s name continues to pop up anywhere and everywhere lately, and now with the release of his latest video clip the hype surrounding him will only continue to rise. Largely thanks to some big co-signs and an appearance in THAT performance alongside Yeezy, the UK hip hop/grime scene has been thrust into the global spotlight, with Skepta firmly at the helm.
Cashing in on the now legendary BRITs performance from Kanye, Skepta and director Grace LaDoja have in a way re-enacted the performance for Shutdown – sans flamethrowers of course. It’s stripped back and has a very DIY feel, which is in keeping with Skepta’s initial appeal. This clip comes in the lead up to his forthcoming album Konnichiwa, which is expected out sometime this year.
