Skepta - Shutdown In Shoreditch [@Skepta] | BRMG
Watch the incredible footage.
Last night Skepta took 'Shutdown' to the next level, literally shutting down the streets of Shoreditch, London to put on a free gig for fans.
The Grime MC took to his Instagram yesterday (30th April) to announce that he'll be performing in Holywell Lane Car Park from 8pm - and fans turned out in the masses for the impromptu event.
Although it might have seemed like a whim Skepta went out on, putting on a gig like last night's one has long been a part of the North London rapper's plans.
He tweeted all the way back in 2010 saying; "One day i'm gonna have a party in a car park and you can all come for free."
Hats off to Skepta for staying true to his word. You can watch highlight footage of Skepta performing 'Shutdown,' 'That's Not Me' and 'It Ain't safe' above.
