2007 release. Skepta is possibly the most talked-about grime artist on the circuit, and this is his debut artist album proper. No ordinary street mixtape; this is the real deal, a full album project. By the time of this CD's original release, Skepta had already been featured on MTV Base About to Blow, graced the pages of magazines from i-D to Dummy to RWD to Blues & Soul, and performed the world over, spreading his sound across Israel, Russia, New York, and Europe, with stops at such UK festivals as Glastonbury and V -- all before releasing an album. Here, the producer, MC, and stage-show master treats fans of Boy Better Know and club anthems like "Doin' It Again" and "Single" to 15 tracks of unadulterated grime. Skepta's perfectionist streak ensures that these are full songs, a combination of party lyrics and concepts that, while drawing from the underground, stands firm among the commercial.
