Watch Now: slowthai & Skepta Share Politically Charged Video For 'Inglorious'17 May 2019
A sociopolitical statement of unrest, slowthai and Skepta hold no punches on 'Inglorious'
Celebrating the release of his debut album, 'Nothing Great About Britain', riotous rapper slowthai shares a politically charged video for 'Inglorious'. A critique of Britain's contemporary political situation, the Northampton rapper teams up with iconic grime MC and Boy Better Know member Skepta on this acid-tongued track.
Taking aim at modern day Britain, the track presents an impression of the country through the lens of George Orwell's '1984'. A true sociopolitical statement, the two rappers discuss a variety of topics, deftly raising issues relating to class, privilege and success. Dressed in vibrant red - an ode to the UK Labour Party's anthem, 'The Red Flag' - the two MCs champion a political shift in Britain.
Impassioned and unrestrained, slowthai's inventive and distinctive flow delivers an earnest and confident expression of working class angst. Combined with Skepta's instantly identifiable voice, 'Inglorious' offers an anthem for those disaffected with contemporary British politics.
