Hypocrisy

  • Skepta surprise-dropped this fiery self-produced track on July 2, 2017. Boy Better Know's DJ Maximum had debuted the track live at the Primavera Festival in Barcelona, Spain, the previous month.
  • Skepta challenges during the track the many online haters that call him out

    'Cause they try to disrespect me
    When they're online especially
    But everyting cool when they check me
    Because I'm so cool and deadly


    Skepta's haters are much tougher online than in real life.
  • A MBE is an award within the British Honours System that is handed out to those who make substantial contributions to the arts and sciences. In the second verse, Skepta reveals that after he won Best Songwriter and Best Contemporary Song at the 2017 Ivor Novello Awards, he was offered an MBE in the Queen's Birthday Honours. However, the rapper decided to turn the gong down.

    Just came back from the Ivors
    The MBE got rejected
    I'm not tryna be accepted
