UK hip-hop is raw, and no, I’m not talking about Tinie Tempah. Over the past year, a plethora of emcees have made their way out of the UK spotlight and into the mainstream. One of these artists was grime-esque rapper Skepta, who this year alone has received cosigns from Kanye West and Drake. Yesterday, he brought us the first track off of his upcoming project #Konnichiwa entitled “Shutdown,” and now I see why this guy deserves such high praise. Stream the new joint below. Cheers.
