Ladies Hit Squad

Album: Konnichiwa (2016)

Songfacts®:

  • This sultry track features fellow London MC D Double E and A$AP Mob associate A$AP Nas rapping about what they can do for the girls. Hypetrack asked Skepta what made him put the two MCs together in the same cut. He replied: "The story behind the song is quite extensive and detailed. But it aligns with the vision I have for my music and work. I care about what I create.

    To each song, there are layers of production processes, which all need a great deal of attention to detail. I put in A$AP Nast in the song because he's talented and a friend. At the same time, however, I wanted to provide the song with a true London vibe, so it made sense to invite D Double E to the fun.

    At the end of the day, it comes all down different kind of elements that I need to somehow make fit together. I work for my hometown London and for the world in general. I try to put as many aspects into consideration as possible when I make my music."
