North London meets Tennessee on “Check It Out Remix.”
Grime icon Skepta and Tennessee’s Xavier Wulf have a history of mutual appreciation, and now, they’ve officially joined forces on wax. In 2015, Skepta tweeted out “Xavier Wulf in the stereo on the motorway. Very empowering,” a big co-sign from one of the U.K.’s biggest hip-hop acts. Later, Wulf ended up actually meeting Skepta, and today they’ve come through with a brief but nevertheless dope remix of Wulf’s “Check It Out.” It picks up where the original left off, employing the same instrumental from Squat Beats and Go Grizzley, only this time, Skepta brings a dose of his overseas swagger.
“Told my girl drive the car, yeah I’m pussy whipped,” raps Skepta, “the world is mine, time is money I’m forever rich / I found my wave, I was surfin’ I remember it, Xa told me keep your eyes on the jellyfish.” Check out the remix now (complete with a Sleem Luciii directed video) and sound off below.
Told my girl drive the car, yeah I’m pussy whipped
The world is mine, time is money I’m forever rich
I found my wave, I was surfin’ I remember it
Xa told me keep your eyes on the jellyfish
