Skepta - Shutdown (Remix)

rate me

Ft. Idris Elba


Yo mans never seen Idris in the studio when it's shutdown

Truss mi daddi

Ole tight Skept, ole tight the crew, ole tight, 7 Wallace

(Verse: Idris Elba)

I've been shutdown, got up again, swear man ah na suffering

No opinions out yo mans and them, gone, clear, vanishin'

Apocalypse, been cancellin'

Wallace Road, I've been smashin' them

Now I'm on a remix, said it's shutdown

And I got ya lookin' at the world, bafflin'

It's ok cause I'm actin' like I'm rappin', but I'm slapping

My dick into them faces of them haters while I'm cashing in

Super friends, down wit 'em, I'm here wit that new sound

I'm here to shut ya down, run yo mouth and go tell a friend

See that Wire? Shut it down, ain't nobody else selling brown

Ain't nobody else Stringer Bell, boy from the East End did well, man

Ya see Mandela, man shut it down, ain't nobody else touching that

Ain't nobody tryin' to fuck wit Denz, this my time on the new gents

Ya'll need a score

I ain't sitting on the bench, I ain't second in command, nah man I'm knockin' down them doors

I ain't living on the fence, I ain't running up [?], now man I'm running up my draws

And I murdered ya, Luther

Have ya heard 'bout that rumour yeah?

(Truss me daddy) Shutdown


When it's Shutdown

That's not me and it's shutdown

Ring ring pussy, it's shutdown

Fashion week and it's shutdown

Went to the show sittin' in the front row

In the black tracksuit and it's shutdown

Touch the road and it's shutdown

Boy Betta Know when it's shutdown

(Verse 2: Skepta)

Yeah, take time if a man want to try me, no time

Usain Bolt when I run up on stage

I pick up the mic and it's reload time

Don't know yo songs but they know mine

That's why I got gigs just like Joe Grind

After the show I be rollin' mine

Don't care bout the no smoking sign

They try to steal my vision

This ain't a culture, it's my religion

God knows I don't want to go prison

But if a man want to try me, trust me listen

Me and my G's ain't scared of police

We don't listen to no politician

Everybody on the same mission

We don't care about yo -ism and -cisms

Cuz it's



A bunch of young men all dressed in black

Dancin' extremely aggressively on stage

It made me feel so intimidated

And it's just not what I expect to see on prime time TV

(Verse 3: Skepta)

I'm in a different class

When I get thru' I'mma bring my dargs

Two by two, man a walk on the ark

Sitting at the front, it's like Rosa Parks

Trust me, ya don't want to see me get dark

Upset cause man are way up right now

And the shit happened all so fast

I was in Paris, shut down l'Arc

New York, shut down Central Park

Talk about London, yo Frisco where shall I start?

Walked in, spat ten 16 bars

And each and every one of them came from the heart

None of my lyrics are stolen

'Go on then, go on then', that's my slogan

Want to know how I did it wit no label

No A list songs, and I told them

Blud, I just



Link up Daddy, all right

Yo tomorrow I'm goin' to come scoop ya, we'll go to Biz's

Yeah fo' sho, all right, don't know
