British-Nigerian rapper, Skepta, in a recent interview talks about his latest EP ‘All In’, retiring from rap and his desire to produce an album for Rihanna.
It looks like for the ‘Greaze Mode’ rapper he has reached the brim of his pre-defined career. Speaking with Tiffany Calver on BBC Radio 1Xtra, Skepta revealed how much he wants to invest his talent into other specialties.
“…it was just a thought in my head where I was like I want to do more than just being a rapper because that’s a waste of a talent”
“I feel like right now I just want to become like more behind the production, I want to produce albums for people,” he said.
He also added;
“I’d love to produce Rihanna‘s album: like that would be dream. I’ll probably make Rihanna’s hardest album.”
Skepta went on to reiterate how he wants to branch out into other ventures. He said; I feel like I just want to branch out. I can’t be a rapper – it’s just a waste of a talent. …rapping for artist, it some sort of therapy, they go somewhere and tell someone to record them and they say their pains.
The rapper who released his sixth (6) mixtape project titled ‘All In,’ said to Apple Music, “I just felt weird about making music for people to download at 12:00 on a Thursday night in their houses.”
Holding his interview at the Hippodrome casino in West London, he disclosed how he came up with his title for the EP – I was having a poker night out during the pandemic and I yelled, “all in!”
The rapper has dropped his first video ‘Nirvana’ featuring J Balvin, off ‘All In’. The EP is available on all major streaming platforms.
