“Three years of my life encapsulated on a CD,” says the grime icon.

Skepta’s long-awaited new album will be finished this week, according to a new interview in i-D.

“I’m finishing my album Konnichiwa this week. Finished! Done! Three years of my life encapsulated on a CD,” he said. Shortly after, he posted a picture of the album’s tracklist being written on Instagram.

Little is known about the album, but a lot has happened since Skepta’s 2011’s Doin’ It Again. Non-album singles such as ‘Shutdown’ and ‘That’s Not Me’ have graced and even topped our year end lists and his label Boy Better Know recently signed Drake. This week we highlighted six ways that Skepta’s Boy Better Know crew have revolutionised grime.
