Skepta's massive single "SHUTDOWN" gets a curveball of a remix today from Stringer Bell himself, Idris Elba. The connection seems to have come about after Elba tweeted Skepta back in March instructing him to put him on the remix because "I SHUT DOWN prime TV on the regular." The result is Elba declaring over the infectious, rowdy beat: I'm slapping my dick into them faces of them haters. Perhaps he's got Dean Blunt in mind?
