It was New Year’s Day 2019 when Skeptabegan crafting the follow-up to his critically-acclaimed 2016 release Konnichiwa. The London artist shared that he buckled down during the recording to of Ignorance Is Bliss, even ridding himself of a few vices. “I stopped smoking this year,” Skepta said. “All my friends smoke, and I just needed to lock myself in the studio. I was in my own psychedelic world for time making the album.”
Skepta’s Ignorance Is Bliss was released on his label Boy Better Know and features artists including Nafe Smallz, Key!, J Hus, Cheb Rabi, B Live, Lancey Foux, Lay Z, and WizKid.
