Skepta’s Got London On “SHUTDOWN” In His New Video

With the world’s eyes on him, the grime MC sticks firmly to his roots.

April 26, 2015

To mark the release of his latest single "SHUTDOWN" in the UK today, Skepta just dropped a monochrome video directed by FKA Twigs collaborator Grace LaDoja. Pounding the pavements with the squad on a sunny day at London's leafy Barbican, the MC is rocking an all-white outfit up until the song hits that sample of an ignorant British viewer calling his appearance with Kanye at the BRITs "aggressive" and "intimidating." After that, it's all black everything under a dark night sky, with the promise you don't wanna see me get dark. You do wanna see this though! While fans worldwide wait for #Konnichiwa, watch Skepta keep it strictly London and strictly grime in the player above.
