You’re likely familiar with Skepta through Palace edits or his work with A$AP Rocky. Whether you’re a fan of the UK MC’s music or not, you have to admire the creativity that went into his latest video for “Bullet From a Gun.” It crafts an entire visual narrative as viewed from the opposite side of the tracks in a train station while Skepta spits dark lyrics sitting on a bench. In terms of mood, lighting, and the use of a stationary camera and subject; this absolutely nails it. Skepta’s forthcoming Ignorance Is Bliss Album drops on Friday.
UPDATE 05.31.19: Skepta’s Ignorance Is Bliss dropped this morning. Stream it below; and check out his video for “Greaze Mode” if you missed it when it dropped yesterday.
