It’s been a busy week for Skepta. After dropping visuals for new tracks “Bullet From a Gun” and “Greaze Mode,” the UK grime artist has finally released his highly-anticipated fifth studio album, Ignorance Is Bliss.

It’s been three years since Skepta dropped his last album, 2016’s Mercury Prize-winning Konnichiwa, and we’re happy to confirm it was more than worth the wait.

Ignorance Is Bliss serves as a 13-track project featuring a number of artists including Boy Better Know, Lay-Z, Wizkid, Lancey Foux, J Hus, Cheb Rabi, B Live, and Key.

Skepta’s effortless flow unites the mature, diverse project, which is stacked with his commentary on politics, relationships, identity politics, and more. Listen to the album below.
