Skepta and AJ Tracey team up for 'Kiss and Tell'
Author: Daniel David | Thursday 31st October 2019
North and West London meet for this new collaboration from Skepta and AJ Tracey titled Kiss And Tell.
Spitting over a brooding Skepta beat, Skepta kicks off proceedings, trading hook duties with AJ. AJ’s first verse kicks off with a cheeky comment about missing the drop: “You thought that I missed the drop, you're unwell,” and gives a shout out to one of Skepta’s classic bars: “and if they wanna war tell ‘em' "Go, on then!" like Skep.”
Skepta comes through on the second verse, showing the international credentials with lines like: “She's dressed to kill, she's a queen for real, she can do it on Bond Street, she can do it on Fairfax.”
The video has a real stripped down quality to it, featuring CCTV and handheld camera style footage, to some of Skepta's previous releases and an homage to old school Grime DVDs. There’s no indication of where this song will end up, but it continues the Halloween tradition Skepta has established of releasing new music, established in 2014 with It Ain't Safe, a Halloween mix for OVO Radio in 2015, the release of Worst and No Security in 2016, an EP, Vicious in 2017, and his collaboration with LD, Neighbourhood Watch, in 2018.
If we do hear of a new project from either artist, we will be the first to let you know.
