'Hypocrisy' was surprise-released today

Skepta has released a new track called 'Hypocrisy'. You can hear it above.

The self-produced, surprise-released track sees Skepta claim that he turned down an MBE on the lines: "The MBE got rejected / I’m not trying to be accepted." He also takes aim at online critics and those trying to ride off the success of him and Boy Better Know.

'Hypocrisy' was previously previewed by DJ Maximum at Barcelona's Primavera Sound last month. The track marks the first significant release from Skepta since last year's Konnichiwa album.
