Skepta has hinted at his retirement from music.
The 38-year-old rapper suggested that his work on producer JAE5’s new song ‘Dimension’ will be among his final tracks and revealed he will not record any new music in 2021.
He wrote on Instagram: “This Jae5 song/video featuring REMA and myself was recorded and shot last year in Ghana. I have one more song with Bando & L’s that we also recorded in 2020 – after we drop that I’m out?…
“Any verses of mine you hear this year were all recorded last year. I’ve stopped recording 2021.”
Skepta’s last solo album was 2019’s ‘Ignorance Is Bliss’, while he joined Chip and D Block Europe rapper Young Adz for a collaborative album called ‘Insomnia’ in 2020.
The news will come as a surprise to fans after Skepta revealed last year that he was working on a new album.
Speaking on Instagram Live in May, he said: “I’m making my album now, you get me, before I stop. I’m making my album now before I stop banging out all the beats.”
