Skepta shares new song/video “Gas Me Up”

After releasing the EP All In in 2021, Skepta shifted his focus away from rap and towards his burgeoning career in house music, both as a DJ and owner of the label Más Tiempo. He still popped up with the occasional indication that he hadn’t left rap behind entirely, though: last spring, a snippet of a new song went viral, and today you can hear the full version, titled “Gas Me Up.” Produced by Cardo, the single is a glossy celebration of success boosted by Skepta’s oaky, blunt delivery. The song appears on Skepta’s new album Knife and Fork, out this year.

Watch the jet-setting video above, and see Skepta’s upcoming tour dates below. They include a set as his very own Big Smoke Festival in London this summer; a performance from Mike Skinner’s the Streets is slated, as is a Más Tiempo showcase.
