In case you’ve been living under a rock, you should by now have heard that Skepta has announced a massive homecoming show in Alexandra Palace on December 2nd.
Mysterious graffitied billboards popped up all over the capital, informing people of the big occasion. Aside from announcing the shows date and location, it teased fans by hinting that the show would also feature a guest, rather enigmatically it didn’t give much more than that away.
As puzzled as many of us may be, there is most certainly a clear front-runner for who this potential “very special guest” could be. Over the last two years the transatlantic bromance between Skeppy and Drizzy has blossomed.
Drake has been courting Grime for a while prior to his relationship with Skepta, he could be seen frequently mentioning TV series Top Boy and even apparently saying a prayer with the Godfather Wiley before a show back in 2012, but his relationship with Skepta has been a constant since 2015. Whether its Skeppy getting an honourable mention on If You’re Reading This It’s Too Late and coming out for Drizzy’s Wireless Festival set, or Skepta himself being a “very special guest” at Drake’s annual OVO Fest in Toronto it’s clear that the relationship between the two is going from strength to strength (not to mention the fact that Skepta recently matched Drake’s BBK tattoo with his very own OVO tat).
Save from Drake’s appearance at the Section Boyz show earlier this year, Skepta has always been the guest. The iconic Alexandra Palace would be the perfecting setting for this all to change…
Aside from the 6 God, I’m sure we can expect from all your favourite UK MC’s and extended members of the BBK family. Either way, December 2nd is looking set to be a historic night.
