The UK artist produced most of the instrumentals himself and he’s slowed down his delivery compared to his previous work. The subject matter also changes from bragging about wealth to a paranoia of politicians, staying home more to avoid drama, and emotions he’s been going through. In a recent interview with BBC Radio 1Xtra he says he isn’t worried about straying from his sound and, “it’s not no obligation to make no grime.”
Skepta delivered official music videos for “Pure Water,” “Bullet From A Gun” and “Greaze Mode” as part of his LP’s rollout. He also appeared in Slowthai’s visuals promoting “Inglorious” earlier this month.
Ignorance Is Bliss is the BBK rapper’s fifth studio album following Greatest Hits, Microphone Champion, Doin’ It Again, and his previous Konnichiwa, which ranked as high as second on the UK charts. He also dropped a quickstrike EP called Vicious in 2017.
