After showing a lot of love to the young rapper and mutual contact between the two, it seems like now the powers that be have finally allowed admiration to turn into a collaboration as Skepta teams up with Tennessee rapper Xavier Wulf for the remix of his popular joint “Check It Out“. The new song comes alongside a Sleem Luciii-directed video that is totally raw.
The video also sees a cameo from the one and only A$AP Rocky. Skepta and A$AP Rocky have worked together previously, alongside A$AP Nast for Skepta’s “Ghost Ride“, with a video that bears a lot of similarities with this one in terms of the video effects and ‘street‘ feel, suggesting this may be the start of a new creative direction for the North London rapper.
As for the song, It’s a sly head-nodder, the beat will definitely creep up on you. Skepta delivers a guest verse with the same base, grit and flow that we have come to appreciate from him and is finished off nicely with a couple bars from Xavier Wulf.
Enough talk, take in the new track and video below:
