Watch Skepta drop a mad freestyle over a Pharrell beat off Travi$ Scott's "Rodeo."
Pharrell and Scott Vener, the man behind the music of "Entourage," "Ballers," and several other shows and films, brought their Beats 1 radio show, OTHERtone, to London this past weekend, and they had some special Londoners come through during the show, including grime star Skepta, who has achieved more crossover success than any U.K. emcee this year with tracks like "Shutdown."
After an interview, Pharrell asked Skepta to spit a few bars, and he did just that. Pharrell played Skepta the "Flying High" beat that he, along with Toro Y Moi, produced for Travi$ Scott's debut album, Rodeo. It's not the type of production Skepta is used to, but his freestyle is absolutely flames, as you can tell by Pharrell's response.
It has also been reported that Pharrell and Skepta have been in the studio together. We can't wait to what they cooked up.
