Skepta reinvents the Grime video for his newest release
Grime and hip hop videos both have a problem of being predictable. Lots of standing around the ends with guns or cars or whatever else. In hip hop at least you’ve ha longer for them to turn their attention to artistic videos but grime hasn’t been around as long. That’s why it’s pretty refreshing to see something like this. Skepta latest, ‘Hypocrisy’ sees him reflect on his growth outside of grime on the track but the video is something else. Looking like a David Lynch fever dream it’s carved out its own meaning. Two dimensional sets with garish color patterns turn it into a circus sideshow with Skepta as the ringleader.
