My best moment of 2015 would have to be when Skepta “Shutdown” Shoreditch with a surprise free gig. This gig took place on 1 May 2015, in case you missed it, which then I have to say, you have clearly been living under a rock. He posted on his Instagram the day before that he would be performing in Holywell Lane car park, starting at 8pm. From there you knew masses of people would gather together in the car park, and yes that is exactly what happened. “It wasn’t safe for the block not even for the cops”, but they still enjoyed too – truss mi daddy.
I mean there is a reason why Skepta said, in his “Back Then” freestyle, “David Cameron on the phone to Obama, Man are shaking and panicking, when they see the shutdown Shoreditch gathering”, because it was a complete Shutdown!
It was a sick idea with an incredible turnout and funny enough it wasn’t something Skepta had thought of that day, it was in fact something he had always wanted to do, as you can see what he tweeted in 2010 below.

Long live King Skeppy!
