Last May, Skepta was scheduled to perform at Webster Hall in New York City, hoping to follow up the success of his massive MoMA PS1 show in the summer of 2015. However, due to issues with his visa, fans were met with the disappointing news that this highly-anticipated show would be postponed until further notice.
Thankfully this new wasn't just talk, and over a year later Skepta finally returned to perform in NYC at Governor's Ball this past weekend, and at Webster Hall last night for a Governor's Ball presented showcase. Regardless of the year-long wait, a sold-out crowd turned up to the venue energized and ready to see Skepta, and the crowd's reaction proved that he did not disappoint.
After running through tracks from his album, "Skepta's Interlude" from Drake's More Life, as well as older songs for his day one fans, Skepta told DJ Maximum to play some new music for the audience. Before walking off stage, Skepta revealed he had been working on new music and wanted to play a song he'd finished just a few days before. It's called "Hypocrisy" and you can listen to a recording from the show below.
