Skepta – It Ain’t Safe

Well organised and hugely collaborative, the second wave of UK Grime has descended upon us with great force.  Skepta is deeply entrenched in this realm, long pioneering those sonic and lyrical aspects that are hugely exclusive to the homegrown scene.

Consequently, we’ve been poised to hear another garage-infused, bass heavy number. Not so.  Instead Skepta has pushed something far more closely associated with West Coast rap hallmarks. It’s a collaboration with A$ap Bari, aka Young Lord, a Harlem born bet maker and fashion extraordinaire fresh out of NY’s hip-hop collective A$ap Mob.
