“They tried to disrespect me, when they’re online especially, but everyting cool when they check me, because I’m so cool and deadly..”
The BBK general drops the follow up to No Security, with Hypocrisy. Even though I would argue that Skepta has been the UK’s top artist (at least within the scene) well before he might have even believed, but since his own realisation and the release of (the now classic) Blacklisted, he has not slowed down, to now where he dictates the tempo.
If you could put a soundtrack to speeding off on your haters, then this is it. It’s still Underdog Psychosis in full effect, as he flows from the soul over the self-produced anthem. “Just came back from the Ivors..and look at what we collected, the MBE got rejected, I’m not tryna be accepted”. As much as the Tottenham MC has evolved over the past couple years, he certainly has not changed or lost focus, as he continues to set the trail ablaze.
Although his monumental album Konnichiwa was only released last year, Hypocrisy surges with a new energy, that has me anticipating the next album already.
“See, I had to realise slowly, that nobody actually knows me, Yeah man..I got 15 different iPhones, but I am so not phoney..”
