Generally, grime and electronic collaborations are a bad idea best left in 2009 but as with everything, if you think a little bit outside the box and have some real creativity then it can work better than ever! That’s exactly what Sam Frank and Skepta have done here with a gritty yet melodic new track that sounds nothing like any other British rapper has done to date. With the right push, it could really branch out to a very different demographic from both artists’ usual listeners and potentially be a commercial hit too.
I’m not sure how the track made its way online and there’s no official announcement yet, but I can’t imagine that it won’t be a single so keep your eyes out for that and in the meantime, have a listen below!
