Skepta’s new All In EP release hasn’t fallen under the radar for many, as the pioneer of UK grime has become an icon abroad. The 38-year-old is now a seasoned veteran of the UK rap game though still manages to bring the same levels fire and energy that many newcomers offer. While All In features high-profile names like Kid Cudi and J.Balvin, Skepta continues to shine on his own- as evidenced by “Lit Like This.”
One wouldn’t be able to tel that Skepta ism nearing his 40’s when giving “All In” a deep dive. The track, which is driven by a simple yet gritty baseline and an intricate percussion pattern, finds Skepta as ruthless as ever, though now with a more refined and matured approach. The artist is entirely self-aware of his superstar status in his lyrics as the life of wealth and luxury radiates from the track. He frequently asserts that he doesn’t need to flex on anyone- all they have to do is pay attention.
Check out the track below:
Got the girls, the cars, the money in the bank (Woo)
Keys to the house, whip bigger than a tank
So much ice it’s a joke, don’t mistake it for a prank (Ice)
When you’re lit like this, you might need to get a shank (Ice)
