"Mastermind", and the Blacklisted project as a whole, redirected Skepta back into a less commercial sound. British soul singer Etta Bond's distorted, layered vocals contribute to the cloudy, bass-fuelled production that forms an atmosphere to explore cannabis psychosis.

As a project and point in time, Blacklisted marked a major shift in Skepta's career that saw him explore new ground. Laura 'Hyperfrank' Brosnan
