Skepta - Shutdown

  • Artist: Skepta
  • Track: Shutdown
  • Producer: Skepta, Ragz Originale
  • Album: Konnichiwa

Update: The Grace LaDoja-directed visuals for Skepta's Shutdown single have been added.

Fresh off of his onstage cameo mobbing with Yeezus at the BRIT Awards is Skepta, a longtime mainstay on the UK grime scene but primed to make waves overseas, causing a Shutdown with his latest release. Bookended by Drake samples, we find the UK-legend accompanied by an uncompromising beat produced by the artist himself, along with assistance by Ragz Originale, signaling to all those still sleeping on grime that it may be best to wake from your slumber. Shutdown will live on Skepta’s long-awaited fourth album, Konnichiwa, which has no concrete release date but should be out later this year.
