Tribute tattoos aside, grime’s 2015 comeback has undisputedly set in and Skepta sits firmly at its helm. Drake’s own OVO Sound Radio aired a remix yesterday of Jamie xx’s dancehall-reminiscent ‘Good Times’ featuring Skepta laying down some bars.
The snippet making the rounds is only about a minute and a half, but it sill goes hard (in a smooth, Cali kinda way). The instrumental has had a work over—it’s faster, trappier, and any trace of Young Thug has been erased. It’s just Popcaan and Skepta on this one, “keepin’ it UK”. Give Skepta’s verse a listen via the player below.
