Skepta: a name you’ve likely heard before. No matter if you know him from his recently-released Nike collaboration, his 2015 smash hit Shutdown, a track that brought grime stateside in a way that had never been done before, or his recent appearance on Drake’s “More Life”, the grime don’s name has certainly been floated in front of you for one reason or another over the past few years.
However, there’s more to the London-based MC than collabs with the biggest sneaker brand in the world and hit records. Skepta is a true style icon, one that marches to the beat of his own drum, and draws from his roots to dress in a way that’s somehow both trendy and unique. Grime music wasn’t the only thing Skepta brought stateside, as the “roadman” style that he helped popularize has set down firm roots around the world. The Tracksuit Mafia don’s style has likely inspired your favorite celebrity/personality/Instagram influencer more than you know.
