Needless to say Skepta’s latest album is on heavy rotation here at Set HQ so it’s only right we highlight it here on the blog.
Skepta is a massive influence on us and from growing up listening to his freestyles to him wearing our S Logo cap, we’ve been locked in for as long as we can remember.
The album’s promo campaign and resulting artwork features his newborn, Slowthai and Blondey McCoy to name just a few. All this is a reminder of just how diverse Skepta’s appeal is and how unshakeable he is within the scene.
On his latest project he sounds effortless. The beats are distinctive, his wordplay amazing and the clarity of the work is second to none. He seems to have really fathered his own style recently but from quick features to deep tracks like “Bullet From a Gun” Skepta is still never boring. The list of collaborators is fitting with the likes of J Hus and Nafe Smallz and bigger artists like WizKid whom he’s teamed up with in the past.
Ignorance is Bliss is Skepta at his finest, doing things exactly his way and telling his own personal story since becoming a father.
