It's a weird one.
The track comes from Skepta’s Viscous EP which dropped out of nowhere on Halloween. The six-track release features guest appearances from Lil B, Section Boyz and closes with ‘Ghost Ride’ featuring the two members of A$AP Mob.
Rocky hinted toward the collaboration back in September, saying: “[I’ve] been working a lot with my boy Skepta, just exchanging energy and vibes in a brotherly way”.
The video for ‘Ghost Ride’ was directed by AWGE, the mysterious creativity entity affiliated with the A$AP Mob and artists like Lil Uzi Vert and Playboi Carti. The trippy visuals resemble a glitched-out take on a ’90s hip-hop video.

Last month, Stefflon Don shared her huge new single ‘Ding-A-Long’ featuring Skepta. Speaking to NME about the collaboration earlier this week, Stefflon Don said: “We actually didn’t go in the studio together, but I know Skepta and we talk, we’re friends. He’s cool, very humble”.
Meanwhile, Liam Gallagher has revealed that he wants Skepta as his support for his upcoming headline show at Finsbury Park.

Asked about who else would be performing across the two stages, Gallagher replied: “It can’t all be 90s stuff, man. We’ve got to mix it up a bit. I’d like to get Skepta playing, have something a bit different.”
“My kid Gene is bang into Skepta,” Gallagher told NME earlier this year. “I like the look of him. He looks a bit odd and kooky. He’s a bit funky.”
