Grime artist joined punk duo during their cover of his song 'Shutdown'

Slaves were joined onstage by Skepta as Radio 1’s One Big Weekend event began in Norwich today (May 23).

The punk duo have taken to covering Skepta’s single ‘Shutdown’ at live gigs since they first performed it during a Live Lounge session on Radio 1 earlier this month. However, they had yet to play the song with Skepta himself until today. Watch footage of the moment, courtesy of the BBC, below.
