Skepta - 'Hold on'

Skepta bleating over generic beats

At the opposite end of the spectrum is Skepta, armed with My First Book Of Opposites. “Never count the days/I make the days count” he bleats over generic beats before informing us that he also “swims when you wanna to see me drown”, “stands up when they wanna see me down” and “smiles when you wanna see me frown”. Raps when you wanna see him shut his trap, etc etc.
