It seems that talk of Skepta’s retirement from earlier in the year has been resolutely put to bed.

Last night, the BBK grime MC stepped into Fumez The Engineer’s studio for a special Halloween edition of Plugged In. Fumez has had an impressive run of guests lately, bringing in Loski, Teeway, Sneakbo, V9 and various members of 67 and OFB this year—but this new one from Skep is already being celebrated as one of the series’ best yet.

The instrumental came from Carns Hill and it was a little grimier than you’d expect from the Brixton producer. It was purpose-built for Skepta though, and fans were treated to a mix of classic bars from across the years as well as some boxfresh bars that had him sounding like his fired-up, pirate radio days.

Of course, Skepta’s been focused on rap for some time now, but even if this was just a fun one-off rather than a sign of what’s to come, it was still a welcome surprise all the same.
