Don’t Sleep: Skepta’s ‘The Westwood Mix’ Brings All The Bang You Need For Today
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.
The mixtape, presented by London radio DJ Tim Westwood, contains all the songs that made him a marquee rap talent back in his hometown across the pond, and what will bring the rest of the world onboard.
Our personal favorites? “That’s Not Me,” “Ace Hood Flow,” “It Ain’t Safe,” “Ojuelegba” and of course the Drake-endorsed sensation, “Shut Down.” But that’s just us. Pick your own favorites below.
