One of the faces of the Grime scene is taking it easy in his newest single. “Ladies Hit Squad” is a slow but steady track by Skepta that features A$AP Nast and U.K. rapper Double E. The rappers effortlessly make the catchy tune their own with lyrics that offer a British twist.
Skepta was recently nominated for an Ivor Novellos Award, a prestigious honor for music made in the U.K.
“Girl I pull up to your city with them racks out. You know how I do it, shows be packed out.”
Skepta has been making waves in music since the early 2000s. He has been a serious act in the U.K. since his debut, dabbling in mainstream hits. His crossover success came after his single “It Ain’t Safe” became a Soundcloud favorite in the United States. Skepta has toured all over the world and was set to hit the Coachella stage this month, but was denied entry into the United States. There is no update on when Skepta will be allowed back in the U.S., but we’re sure his return will be welcomed with open arms and ears.
