Hear Skepta murder a live freestyle on triple j

Grime’s top boy Skepta is in the country right now, wrapping up a triumphant tour of festivals like Beyond The Valley, Origin and Field Day with a (sold out) gig at Melbourne’s Corner Hotel this Friday 8 January and a slot at Brisbane’s inaugural FOMO Festival on Saturday 9 January.

But first, he stopped by the triple j studios in Sydney’s Ultimo yesterday for a chat with Drive host Shantan Wantan Ichiban, and delivered a straight fire freestyle over the instrumental of Kano’s P’s and Q’s. Over the course of a minute, the UK rapper fit in a stack of props and burns (“dressed like I just come from PE, you’re dressed like you just come from church”) and shouted out a bunch of his Australian tour crew and supporters.

Give the full freestyle a listen below, and hear the full interview – including dirt-dishing on his work with Drake – over at triple j.
