Don’t Sleep: Skepta’s ‘The Westwood Mix’ Brings All The Bang You Need For Today

New Releases

For the past few days, U.K. grime spitter Skepta has been making the streets of New York City his second home. First, he shut down Williamsburg on Labor Day with a killer set at Fool’s Gold Day Off. After that, he spent his downtime at various spots in Manhattan, partaking in freestyle battles, popping up at Travi$ Scott shows and handing out physical copies of his next audio treat, The Westwood Mix.
