Skepta has served up the latest single lifted from his forthcoming Knife and Fork record. With the help of emerging Nigerian rapper Portable – and Jae5 on production – "Tony Montana" is an upbeat Afrobeats offering that melds grime and Nigerian influences.
"Yeah, I remember, nigbati ebi n pami / Breakfast, lunch, and dinner, we drink garri / Now they wanna snap pictures, I live flashy / Who gon' stop me, huh? Iwo pelu tani," Skepta enters the celebratory cut, dominating the hard-hitting verses.
Portable handles the chorus, breaking Big Smoke's heavy flow with his smooth vocals. "Big Smoke pelu tobacco oh / Tony, Tony, Tony Montana oh / Wacko, psycho / I want to explode."
The bouncy new single comes accompanied by a cinematic visual as well, which sees Skepta and Portable really tapping into their Scarface alter egos. Directed by Capone, the duo, donning ample fur, is posted up outside a grandiose hotel, spitting bars and showing off their dance moves. The boys then roll up to an all-white party, where they continue to be the lives of the party.
