Skepta harks back to the golden days of Grime in latest video for "That's Not Me"

When legendary Grime emcee Skepta released an 8 minute long video which gave us an insight into his thoughts behind his forthcoming album Konichiwa, we were treated to an off the cuff, street performance of new track "That's Not Me". The grainy, VCR-like footage harked back to the good old times of the early noughties when Grime was at it's peak and street videos such as Practice Hours showed the rawness of UK street music.

A month or so on from the initial video, we've been treated to a brand new video for "That's Not Me", and this time around it's accompanied by a fully mixed version of the track. Skeppy still manages to keep an old school vibe about the visuals though, as Boy Better Know DJ Maximum stands at a rickety looking table complete with decks whilst Skepta and his brother JME both spit their bars through the headphones, something that used to happen back in Grime clashes when the microphone broke. This will bring back a lot of nostalgia for Grime fans, and it appears, if this single and interviews are anything to go by, that Skepta's next album may herald back to the glory days of Grime, and I for one am quite happy about it.

You can peep the video for "That's Not Me" below, and be sure to keep an eye out for Skepta's forthcoming album Konichiwa, which will be out at some point this year.
