Skepta Returns with New Track 'Gas Me Up [Diligent]'

Skepta makes a triumphant comeback today with the release of his latest track 'Gas Me Up [Diligent],' produced by Cardo. The song, affectionately dubbed 'Diligent' by fans since a viral teaser drop in April 2023, marks a bold return to Skepta's rap roots, serving as a tantalizing preview of his forthcoming album 'Knife and Fork.'

Accompanying the release is a visually captivating video, co-directed by Skepta himself and collaborator Stevo1k. The video kicks off with Skepta atop the iconic TraxNYC jeweller rooftop in New York before taking viewers on a mesmerizing journey through the streets of London, featuring Clint 419 in cameo appearances.

The excitement doesn't end there. Skepta enthusiasts can anticipate catching him live at the Big Smoke Festival in London on July 6th, where he'll grace the stage alongside fellow artists such as Mas Tiempo and headliner The Streets. For further details on the festival lineup, visit Festival Republic's official website.

'Gas Me Up [Diligent]' isn't just a standalone release; it also serves as the soundtrack to Skepta's debut film, "Tribal Mark." Premiering on January 24th and receiving a nationwide UK release at Everyman Cinemas on January 26th, the film, co-directed and executive produced by Skepta himself, delves into the narrative of a Nigerian immigrant in London. With a cast and production team comprising 90% minority ethnic representation, "Tribal Mark" marks a significant milestone for Skepta's 1PLUS1 Production company.

Skepta's schedule is packed with live performances, including Coachella appearances in April, followed by an extensive European festival tour in July and August, hitting iconic stages from Pohoda Festival to Blockfest in Finland.
