Performer Notes
  • Recording information: Conway Recording Studios, Hollywood, CA.; Westpoint Studios, London, UK.
  • Photographers: Sam Neill; Derek Hui.
  • Out of Skepta's first few proper albums, Konnichiwa was easily the most successful. It reached number two in the grime MC's native U.K. Thanks in part to support from Drake, it even cracked the Billboard 200 in the U.S, an obvious target through the soft, slow, and melodic "Ladies Hit Squad" and a sparse and percussive Pharrell collaboration, "Numbers." When the album was released, three of its singles had already secured Top 40 U.K. placement. Each one of them -- "Man," "Shutdown," "That's Not Me" -- is a lyrically swaggering, rhythmically jagged affirmation of Skepta's grime roots. They're all de-emphasized somewhat by their consecutive second-half appearances. The first half is not without its share of highlights, including the lean, blaring "Crime Riddim," nervy "Corn on the Curb" (featuring Wiley), and taut "Lyrics" (featuring Novelist). Lines aimed at authority, competition, and bottom feeders all shoot clean through. ~ Andy Kellman
Professional Reviews
Mojo (Publisher) - Ranked #25 in Mojo's 'The 50 Best Albums Of 2016' -- "Each track parries and punches, lunges and grabs; there's even a QOTSA sample."

NME (Magazine) - "Skepta is on scorching form throughout, his direct, firmly enunciated bars addressing rival MCs, life in the fast lane and hassle from the feds..."

Pitchfork (Website) - "KONNICHIWA is easily the most blatantly anti-authoritarian statement from rap this year, overflowing with sneering contempt for popular culture's industry of image, the press, the police, and the government at large."
