Idris for the remix?

Idris Elba has shared a video of him listening to Skepta's new track 'Shutdown.'

The clip, which the 'Luther' actor sent directly to Skepta himself on Twitter, focusses specifically on the audio snippet that Skepta sampled in the track. 

It hears a critic complaining that she felt "intimidated" by Kanye West's BRIT Awards performance of 'All Day', which Skepta featured in.  

If ever you wondered where Idris stood on the comments, the above video which shows him burst out laughing after hearing the comments will set the record straight.

"@Skepta Put me on the Remix!!!!" Idris tweeted, adding; "Cus I SHUT DOWN prime TV on the Regular."

Kanye West's BRIT Awards performance, which saw him bring on stage several of the UKs biggest grime acts, had everyone talking last month after much of the set was audio muted because of strong language.
