Noisey’s new documentary catches Skepta on a sold-out tour of North America, and features behind the scenes footage of the grime legend with Novelist, A$AP Nast, Jammer, Shorty, Krept & Konan and Frisco
Today, Noisey presents a new documentary offering a portrait of grime legend Skepta as he embarks on a tour of North America. Directed by Alex Hoffman, Skepta: Top Boy follows the UK icon from the tour bus to the stage to downtime in the spa and features behind the scenes footage with Novelist, Krept & Konan, A$AP Nast, Frisco, Jammer, and Shorty.
In the summer of 2015, the year that grime exploded into the mainstream, Skepta headed to The East Coast and Canada with some friends to play a sold out tour. Following him from New York to Washington DC and culminating in a performance at Drake’s OVO festival in Toronto, Noisey were there throughout to document this milestone in Skepta’s career.
Skepta: Top Boy follows the success of other Noisey music documentaries including Noisey Israel Palestine: Hip Hop in the Holy Land, Noisey Atlanta, and Under the Influence, and many more.
VICE started Noisey back in 2011, criss-crossing the globe documenting the year in music from heavy-hitters to tiny garage bands who usually play for their girlfriends and moms. Since then, it has grown into one of the most unique and successful video-driven music sites on the planet. In 2012, Noisey teamed with YouTube as a premium content provider, and built out a series of shows that take a completely fresh take on the world of music.
