Today’s FTOD is by the one & only Skepta. The Tottenham MC has had an unprecedented career resurgence like no other since releasing That’s Not Me in April 2014. Skeppy’s career has gone from strength to strength, with notable career milestones occurring over the past 18 months. The microphone champion released his critically acclaimed Konnichiwa album, won the 2016 Mercury prize, sold out Ally Pally & headlined the ‘Other Stage’ at Glastonbury ten days ago all within the timeframe. Skepta has swiftly followed this up with the release of Hypocrisy this week & I reckon that a Skepta project might be following this at some point later in the year. Skepta & his BBK crew will be headlining the o2 Arena over the August bank holiday weekend, which will be yet another feather in Skepta’s cap but enjoy the new fire tune below in the meantime.
“I’m a Nigerian eagle….in London smoking illegal”- standout bar simply because I love when he shouts out the motherland!
