Turnip Tuesday: Skepta – “Numbers” (Ft. Pharrell)

EXACTLY  a year ago we introduced you to Skepta via an electrifying punk-cover of his smash single “Shutdown”.  “That’s Not Me”, “Man”, and “Shutdown” are all riding at the same tempo to make true and new Grime fans comfortable that Mr. Adenuga has not sold out in his latest critically-acclaimed LP, Konnichiwa. That said, “Shutdown” has done all it can do as a single, and its time to move on to bigger and better things.
There is nobody better to dock the Black British Invasion than The Othertone Skateboard P (aka Pharrell Williams).  Much like he did for 2 Chainz with “Feds Watching”, Pharrell laces Skepta with familiar bongo drums to “fuvk up a whole new sound” with. This could do numbers on the Rhythmic charts, and introduce the British to a whole new crowd! MAKE THIS THE SINGLE, PLEASE! #SummertimeAlert
