Back in July, Skepta delivered the five-track EP All In, a genre-bending body of work that saw collaborations alongside Teezee, Kid Cudi, and J Balvin. Over the weekend, the Boy Better Know emcee followed that by entering the booth for Fumez The Engineer’s “Plugged In” series, giving us some of his most iconic bars over a hard-hitting instrumental courtesy of Carns Hill:

“It’s the return of the Mack, I’m still alive just like 2Pac, girls in the front row, girls in the back, spit one lyric, everybody’s like brap, flashback to the cold nights in the trap, now I’m in a new whip counting the big stack, white-gold chain and the diamonds are black, jack me? Nah, you don’t wanna do that, God forgive me if I buss my .9, God forgive me if I buss my .9, I don’t wanna get locked up like Shyne, dissed my mom, then he crossed my line…”

Last year, Skepta teamed up with Chip and Young Adz for the supergroup release Insomnia, which contained 12 tracks and a single appearance from Adz’s D-Block Europe co-star Dirtbike LB. The project was both a critical and commercial success for the London trio, peaking within the top five of the UK Official Albums chart following its first week of release. Skepta’s latest official solo effort — Ignorance Is Bliss, his fifth — made landfall in 2019, and came with 13 songs and contributions from the likes of Nafe Smallz, KEY!, J Hus, Lancey Foux, Lay-Z, Wizkid, and (of course) the Boy Better Know collective. In addition to peaking at the number one and two spots on the UK Albums and R&B Albums charts, respectively, Ignorance Is Bliss has also subsequently scored Skepta a Silver certification.
