Skepta's 'Ignorance Is Bliss' Is Here

May 31, 2019

BBK don Skepta is back with Ignorance Is Bliss, his first album since 2016's Konnichiwa. Given how busy he's been in the intervening years, it's hard to believe it's only been three years—in fact, it wasn't even that long ago that Skepta announced the album, formerly titled SK Level, but it still feels as if this is a 'long-awaited' release.

We're going to give you the full review later today, but the general vibe is mostly grime and UK rap with touches of drill and trap thrown in as well. Features come from J Hus, Nafe Smallz, previous collaborators Wizkid and Lancey Foux, singer Cheb Rabi, Atlanta rapper Key!, UK garage MC B Live, North London MC Lay-Z and his BBK cohorts.
