Skepta Returns With New Song “Pure Water”
It's been a few months since Skepta dropped any new music, but after becoming a chief in his family's hometown in Nigeria and showing off a new collaboration with Nike, it appears the U.K. artist is ready for his return. On Monday (May 7), Skepta dropped off his latest single, "Pure Water."
As usual, the track features Skepta spitting hard-hitting bars over a bass-heavy instrumental. "She weren't fuckin' the old me, I bet she's feelin' my new shit/I told her we gotta keep it true, told her we gotta move as a unit/I had to chat to Cupid, said, 'little man you know I ain't stupid'/Told you that it's more than music, paps outside tryna get an exclusive," he raps.
While it's uncertain if "Pure Water" is the next single off a new album, Skepta knows his enemies have been praying for his downfall. "I clocked the game I'm still barrin', please don't speak to me when I'm dancing/Everyday they pray that I fall off, I'm popping up like 'what's gwaning?'" Skepta spits.
In October, Skepta dropped his Vicious EP. The six-track project includes guest appearances from Lil B, A$AP Rocky, Section Boyz and A$AP Nast. The record also features the tracks "Still," "No Security" and "Hypocrisy."
