Several days ago UK artist Skepta announced on Twitter that his new single Dare To Dream had been passed on to Eminem.
First off I don’t like that cretin Jimmy Iovine. I know what your about, I got your number sir!
Secondly it sounds like Skepta didn’t really want to hand over his new single, which was already receiving some radio play in the UK. It also sounds like Universal removed the single from YouTube without even informing him first, and he was bamboozled and hood winked in to agreeing to hand over the single to Iovine and Eminem.
Iovine and Eminem come knocking and people get ready to sell their souls and their briefs.
Anyway I hope Skepta and crew were paid handsomely for handing over Dare To Dream.
Check out his version below.
I actually like the single. Skepta should have held on to it (that’s if he had a choice).
And why not release a UK version giving Skepta the opportunity to appear alongside Eminem on the track?
And Skepta you shouldn’t feel privileged, you should be furious. Acknowledge what’s really happened here.
