We’re only hours away from Konnichiwa, and Skepta has teased another new track.

Dropped on Zane Lowe’s Beats 1 show, ‘Lyrics’ features the Lewisham don himself Novelist and boasts some refreshingly skeletal production, with the kind of blips and low end thump that should have heads remembering grime’s first wave.

It’s yet another tantalizing taste of Skepta’s long-awaited Konnichiwa, which is set to drop tomorrow, Friday May 6. It comes at a time when Skepta seems poised to break the glass ceiling into another level of stardom, and with Drake and Kanye West in his court, he’s certainly got the right push.

Let’s hope that Konnichiwa, when it drops, gives Skepta the propulsion he needs to not only push his own name to the next level, but grime in general.

Listen to ‘Lyrics’ below, and look out for ‘Detox’ (feat. BBK) on Julie Adenuga’s Beats 1 show later this evening.
