With very little fanfare and just a sole post on Instagram as promotion, Skepta unveils to us a brand new solo track – “Pure Water“. The song follows the release of Boy Better Know‘s “Athlete” last week, the first piece of music from the collective in a long while and a string of other notable feats from Skepta including his chieftaincy in Nigeria and the unveiling of his latest Nike collaboration.
On the music side of things, Skepta does not disappoint yet again, teasing with his twist on the classic nursery rhyme “Row Row Row Your Boat” for the intro before his signature flow and boastful bars absolutely dominates the deep, dark production, and it’s all complimented with a catchy hook that will stay ringing in your head.
“Pure water and lots of ice / She knows that I be the boss of life…”
Those who think Skepta is not on top of his game might want to think again…
