Skepta Transcends The Boundaries of Grime With "Konnichiwa"

Skepta Transcends The Boundaries of Grime With "Konnichiwa"

Classifying grime is tricky due its roots throughout many different musical genres and scenes. However, many have linked its development to have borrowed from UK garage, jungle, and hip-hop (which is often thought to be a very ignorant comparison). What could be the biggest reason this comparison is made could also be the reason grime is starting to get worldwide exposure; "the grime king". Fresh off his "No Fear" tour and now playing multiple shows in the UK, Skepta appears to be leading the forefront of this scene. His latest project, Konnichiwa, is probably best summarized by its own title; a form of greeting from a separate culture, language, and way of life.
