Today, Skepta makes his comeback with Big Smoke/Epic Records UK with the release of his new track ‘Gas Me Up [Diligent],’ produced by Cardo. Fans gave it the nickname ‘Diligent’ following a viral teaser dropped in April 2023.

Reigniting his roots in rap, the song serves as a preview of his highly anticipated album ‘Knife and Fork,’ reaffirming Skepta’s position as the UK’s top rapper.

It will drop alongside a video that begins with Skepta on the rooftop of TraxNYC jeweller in New York, and features Clint 419, with scenes shot across London. The video was co-directed by Skepta and collaborator Stevo1k.

The release follows the announcement of the line-up for Skepta’s Big Smoke Festival which happens in London on July 6th. Skepta will perform, as will Mas Tiempo, with The Streets announced as a headliner.

‘Gas Me Up [Diligent]’ serves as the credits in Skepta’s debut film, ‘Tribal Mark,’ which premieres on 24 January, followed by a nationwide UK release at Everyman Cinemas on 26 January. ‘Tribal Mark’ explores the narrative of a Nigerian immigrant in London with Skepta starring in and serving as co-director and executive producer of the film. With a 90% minority ethnic cast and production team, the film stands as a landmark project from Skepta’s 1PLUS1 Production company.
