It's been over three years since the release of Skepta's last album, the critically-acclaimed Konnichiwa. As the rapper's profile grew bigger in the North American market, the rapper continued to deliver new music within that period including the Wizkid assisted, "Energy," and his EP, Vicious which included features from A$AP Rocky, Smoke Boyz (f.k.a Section Boyz), and Lil B. With a new album on the way, he's unleashing more singles to get us prepared for its May 31st release.

Skepta delivered the first single, and the first track, off of his forthcoming project, Ignorance Is Bliss earlier this morning with "Bullet From A Gun." In less than 24 hours, he's back with his second single off of the project, the Nafe Smallz-assisted, "Greaze Mode." His latest effort is more of a hard-hitting banger in comparison to "Bullet." 

"The internet is making everything and everyone politically correct but that takes away the artistry,” Skepta said in a statement regarding the album. “Ignorance Is Bliss deals with the yin yang of Life. True Skepta, saying it exactly how it is.”

Quotable Lyrics
And if I ain't the headline, then I must be the special guest
I pull up and steal the show, and I weren't even tryna flex
Had to touch the afterparty, she just sent me the address
Said that she wanted me to come and I told her "say it with your chest"
