Conversations About Her

Skepta – Man | Music Video


After a year’s long wait, grime MC Skepta’s highly anticipated album, Konnichiwa, is finally due for release on Friday, May 6. Just ahead of that release, though, the Londoner has decided to share a new video for his single, “Man”.


It opens eerie, downright scary, even. The raps are serious, joined with low, trumpeting brass. There’s violent shouting providing paradoxical respite to the listener, prior to the start of the second verse. The backdrop, in its closing moments, rises above the violence but still remains very much moody.


The Risky Roadz-directed clip is lo-fi, adopting the classic look of earlier camcorder-filmed visuals, and finds Skepta and his gang giving it large around nightspots in the Big Smoke.

I've always wanted to be involved in the media since before I even left school; to write for a living.I feel most eloquent when mapping out my thoughts on paper or on a computer screen.I studied media at college for two years, and went straight into third year at university studying publishing with journalism.After a range of work experience, I did a magazine journalism course in Bournemouth, a long way away from my hometown of Aberdeen, achieving my NCTJ qualifications.Now I spend my time gladly writing about music.
