In preparation for his new ‘Konnichiwa’ album, out May 6, the grime MC took his crew to east London to record the promo for new single ‘Man’. Total chaos…
On Fri Apr 22, Skepta plus Lethal Bizzle, Chip and Boy Better Know members DJ Maximum, Shorty, Jammer and Solo 45 played a crazy show for the video for Skepta’s track ‘Man’.
Skepta advertised the show at Visions in east London with an Instagram post that morning saying “Friday. Shutdown. Music. Merch. Ladies. Konnichiwa. Visions. Tonight.”
Twelve hours later, as the night began, Skepta was soaking the crowd with champagne. An hour of madness followed, during which Skepta ripped through ‘Man’ and 2014’s ‘It Ain’t Safe’, Bizzle jumped on the mic for a few bars – including bits from his 2015 track with Stormzy, ‘Dude’ – and Jammer blasted out lines from old classics ‘Duppy’ & ‘Murkle Man’, all while hollering at people to get the hell off the stage. No one did. After all that, it’s unclear when the video will be released. Should be lively.
Skepta fans are also waiting to see if he’ll make an appearance on Drake’s new album, ‘Views From The Six‘ which is released on Friday. It’s been heavily hinted that he’s been involved but in what form, we’re yet to see.
