Skatta – Hardships

skatta, grime

Fresh EP from Skatta the West Midlands, UK as Coventry’s dopest artist just released a new seven track EP which is centred around themes many of us can resonate with in 2020!

With the corona pandemic causing financial hardships amongst millions, there’s also a Black Lives Matter movement which has led to the world waking up to how we can all challenge the racial injustices affecting those of ethnic minorities.

The lead single ‘Hardships’ taps into both of these, and work as a brilliant introduction to why you need to hear the full EP! While he doesn’t just cover these issues in the project, Skatta has shown his growth as an artist. From the selection of beats he spits on, the collaborations he brings on the EP and the subject matter he talks about throughout the project, the 7 tracks are impressive throughout.

The 7 track EP features vocal input from Clipson, LDizz, OneDa, Kriptik, Tarju Le’Sano, Lawless and Mac James. Production comes courtesy of transatlantic range of producers  OH91, J-Fresh, Trap Jesus, DJ KDubz, Juberlee and Swat Team Beats.

‘Hardships’ was created in lock down, so the energy and themes covered are glaringly ‘of the moment’, speaking to the people of this country about the ups and downs in life today.
