”Skepta is credited as an architect of grime’s astonishing commercial resurgence in the UK”
– Alexis Petridis / The Guardian (12.5.2016)

BET, Mercury Prize and MOBO Award-winning Skepta started his career as a dj and a producer in Tottenham. He also picked up emceeing after a while and hasn’t really looked back since. Skepta and his brother Jme founded the Boy Better Know collective in 2006 and it currently includes members like Wiley and Drake.

Skepta’s most recent album, ”Konnichiwa” was considered one of the best records of 2016 by a number of different music medias (from The Guardian to Pitchfork). The singles That’s Not Me, Ladies Hit Squad, Man and especially Shutdown were all hits. This spring Skepta has released new material in the form of the single No Security.
