Skepta’s Single Artwork Has Fans Accusing Him Of Making A Distasteful Holocaust Reference


Skepta is arguably the most widely respected rapper from the United Kingdom. He has built a great career for himself not only as an influential spitter but also as a house DJ. It has been nearly five years since the release of his last solo album, Ignorance Is Bliss. However, that drought is coming to an end this year. Just a little over a week ago, Skepta revealed that he was going to be putting out a new album.

It is going to be called Knife And Fork. In addition to that, Skepta also announced the lead single, “Gas Me Up (Diligent)” will be out on January 26. Well, he has given us another update by unveiling the artwork. Skepta did so on his social media recently. “GAS ME UP (DILIGENT)Artwork by @gabrielomoses * link in my bio *” While this is all exciting, it is leaving a sour taste in a lot of people’s mouths.

Skepta Is Putting Himself In Dangerous Territory

As you can see the art features the backs of people’s shaved heads. They all appear to be on their knees as well. This is drawing some comparisons to one of the most tragic events in human history, The Holocaust. As you can imagine, people are linking this to Kanye West‘s many hurtful comments toward the Jewish community that landed him in a lot of issues. Skepta could be hurdling toward a certain fate now too. One person says, “thought this was Ye’s page for a second..” Another adds, “Ye Executive on this one?!?!”
