This Friday, Skepta will release his new album Ignorance Is Bliss, the much-anticipated follow up to his Mercury Prize winning LP Konnichiwa. Announced earlier this month, he shared the first LP tracks in "Bullet From A Gun" and "Greaze Mode" that go in somewhat different directions musically, but remain very much Skepta. Now he has released the music video for “Bullet From A Gun.”
The video is a simple concept, but allows Skepta to examine the themes put out in the song. He is sitting with a baby stroller on a bench at the Camden Town Underground station with the camera on him from the other side of the platform.
He sits and raps as a litany of scenes evolve around from a girl saying goodbye to one man and then saying hello to the next, two guys stealing an unattended bag and getting arrested for it and more.
Watch the video below and pre-order Ignorance Is Bliss, which will be released this Friday, May 31.
