It's been 5 years since the last full-length album from Skepta, but the wait has been well worth it as he's pulled out all stops this time around.
Dubbed Konnichiwa, the album features a host of talented artists brought in to collaborate with the Grime kingpin. Even Pharrell gets in on the action, along with the legendary Wiley, D Double E, Novelist, JME and more. The bars are loaded with grit and the beats bang hard as ever. In many ways, the album is a reflection of the culture that's been blossoming with the distinct genre. All eyes will be on Skepta moving forward, no doubt.
Last night Skepta was fittingly in Japan to premiere his new album live on Boiler Room. As Grime continues to branch out all across the globe, this was the perfect setting for a proper party. Now we all can listen to Konnichiwa in it's full glory. Also, check out the Boiler Room session below, which is just absolute madness.
