The long awaited album from Skepta finally dropped on May 6th and lets just say it is certainly a step up from ‘Blacklisted‘. Skepta has blew up the grime scene, breaking America and hijacking the stage at the 2015 Brits with Kanye West. Konnichiwa is packed with 12 songs, 8 of which Skepta produced himself. He delivers lyrics loaded with nothing but love and respect to his gang, family and his late friend Lucas Maxwell who tragically was stabbed last year.
Konnichiwa has become grimes highest ever charting album, landing at number 2 on the weeks official chart showing how much Skepta has made an impact on grime music. Some say this is the greatest grime album of all time, that is down to opinion however it certainly is up there with the greatest. Raw, authentic, playful and personal this is Skepta’s best.
