Grime kingpin Skepta has sprung a new single on his fans, beginning a potential return, and future studio album.
The pensive, surpisingly laid-back ‘Pure Water’ arrived on Spotify last night, and marks his first solo piece of music of the year, which you can check out below.
Despite having not released his own music for a while, Skepta is carrying a huge amount of momentum, having won the Mercury Prize in 2016, with his last album Konnichiwa. The MC then went on to promote the grime genre to unprecedented levels by collaborating with and befriending Drake, appearing on the Canadian’s More Life project, even having a track named after him.
As well as this, the Boy Better Know leader was also awarded the title of chieftain in Nigeria, where his parents originate from, attending a ceremony in his family’s hometown of Ijebu Ode, on April 4.
