on June 11, 2015, 1:30pm

Last week, Skepta let loose a ferocious remix of his “Shutdown” single which featured none other than renowned actor Idris Elba. Today, however, the Kanye West associate takes things down a notch with “Lukey World”, a solemn tribute to the late grime prodigy Lukey Maxwell, who was found dead in a London park earlier this month.

“Supposed to be grieving, but instead I’m in the hood with the whole team scheming,” Skepta rhymes pensively on the track, adding, “Supposed to be leaving, but I stay right here ’cause my heart still bleeding.” Listen in below, followed by one of Skepta’s many touching Instagram tributes to Maxwell.
