Skepta has been killing it since day dot, but with each passing year he just seems to ramp it up a level and 2015 has been his biggest year yet. His latest output 'Top Boy' (which first featured on the Tim Westwood Mix that surfaced last month) comes with a footage that follows him across his sold out North America tour this summer, and is set to be a part of a forthcoming Noisey Documentary also entitled 'Top Boy'. The unabridged version of the song can be heard below via soundcloud.
Whist Skepta's content with releasing his own bangers, he's also quick to jump on the tracks of his peers if he senses he can up the levels, and he's done exactly that with one of the tracks of the summer: Jamie xx's 'Good Times'. Bringing fellow BBK member Frisco out to play, they exchange bars over the undeniably catchy beat that was first shared in part by OVO Sound.
And from the big hits to the unknown, Skepta & his new best mate Drake jumped on the Nigerian musician Wizkid's 'Ojuelegba' a couple of months ago which I truly respect. They use their own fame to raise awareness of a young musician, and share a few truths while their at it.
Unfortunately on the saddest note, the final track 'Lukey World' has come about for all the wrong reasons. Written as a tribute for Lukey Maxwell, Skepta spits over a haunting and solemn beat lamenting his fallen friend who was tragically and fatally stabbed in North London in June.
Konnichiwa will be out one day I'm sure, but for now we're all just trying to keep up with this on fire MC.
