Like the rest of the grime world, Skepta released an impressive project in 2017. Unsurprisingly, he has already blessed us with a new jam this year, but he decided to change things up a bit. Slowing his signature high-speed flow and seamlessly blending into the Southern hip-hop production of Xavier Wulf, Skepta joined the Tennessee rapper in a remix of his popular song, Check It Out. It highlights Skepta’s ability to transcend styles with grace and hard-hitting bars, leaving him poised to shine through like a hip-hop veteran.
It’s a must listen for fans of Skepta, fans of Xavier Wulf, fans of hip-hop, and fans of grime curious to see UK artists continue their heavy workload outside of the genre’s box. We’re all for the transatlantic, transcendent collaboration resulting in a more well balanced collection of bangers in the grey area between hip-hop and grime.
