Skepta for Crack Magazine

Skepta dropped details of his long awaited album on Instagram

It’s been one of the most hotly-anticipated grime albums of recent years and it looks like it may be less than a month away. Skepta has finally put a release date on Konnichiwa. The MC posted a picture on Instagram this evening with the caption “#Konnichiwa the album, May 6th. Greatness.” The image, which shows a British postal stamp featuring Skepta’s face, is presumably the album’s artwork.
