Skepta & Octavian Join Forces for Sensual Hit, Papi Chulo 

 Evan Dale // Mar 19, 2020 

Overtop a Spanish guitar, Skepta and Octavian bring to life one of the most uniquely sensual songs either have ever put out. Papi Chulo is a classic hip-hop baby-maker, made undeniably different by the many unique lanes either have carved out for themselves over the years – a harsh intensity from Skepta and a poetic understatement from Octavian in particular. Seemingly en route to another new album to follow up 2019’s Ignorance is Bliss, Papi Chulo falls in line between Kiss and Tell and Waze which themselves also fold in an outrageous swatch of the UK’s best features. 

 

But, as far as an international, inventive direction is concerned, Papi Chulo is one of Skepta’s best tracks in recent memory, and hopefully dictates the greater direction of his forthcoming project.
