Last year, Skepta had been hinting at the release of a new full-length titled SkLevel, though revealed his intentions to change the album's name on Instagram in April.
"I've been working hard and I'm more focused than ever," he wrote. "Changed my album title cos #SkLEVEL is a 2018 pattern. New year, new name."
