Skepta In Studio With Kanye West [@Skepta]

Skepta (@Skepta) - Shutdown

Remember how we told you Skepta ‘may’ have been working with the hip hop Illuminati? Well now we have confirmation that he is. Kanye has been on a pretty heavy promo tour for his collaboration with Adidas and his new album – from his performance at the Brits to breaking down in tears in an interview with Zane Lowe. Yesterday Kanye surprised some raffle winners by hand delivering his new Yeezy Boosts at the Adidas store on Carnaby Street.

One of the fans, Johnny Park, even managed to get some album details out of Kanye. Speaking to Capital XTRA, Park said:

“I heard that I won the raffle last night and was told to turn up at the Adidas Store this morning at 9am. Me and a few others were sitting there when Kanye came out carrying boxes of Yeezy Boosts…He gave everyone a pair and had a chat with us! He said he was in the studio with Skepta at the moment and he also said the first single from the album is going to be ‘All Day’ and it’s going to feature Theophilus London and Allan Kingdom. And it’s going to have a piece from Paul McCartney on the end.”

Well there you have it, Skepta and Kanye West. Undoubtedly monumental stuff. Both have albums coming out pretty soon, with Skepta and Kanye releasing their new singles:

It’ll be interesting to see where the track ends up; there may even be more than one song in the works. Either way, the UK scene just got even more exciting.
