Drizzy’s “truss mi daddi” is immortalised on the grime star’s new track.
Produced by Skepta and Ragz Originale, ‘Shutdown’ is taken from his forthcoming album #Konnichiwa. “We made about 7 different instrumentals to it but this one was the maddest,” he told Fader. “Big up my bro Drake on the sample, trust me listen.”
The single is the latest in a flurry of cultural exchanges between US and UK rap – earlier this week Skepta was one of the dozens of grime MCs on stage with Kanye West at the Brits, and last year he put out a track with A$AP Mob’s Young Lord.
