Skripteh and Shabba go back to back in ‘8 Bar Riddim’

Words: Dylan Murphy

The two spitters spin heads on a grime instrumental courtesy of New Machine.

Wexford spitter Skripteh has linked up with Shabba for a freestyle indebted to the golden years of grime. Bringing icy cold flows over a pumping beat from close collaborator New Machine, it sees the pair go bar for bar in a a no holds barred session.

Shot by fellow Wexford natives The BallyBoyz, the video sees the duo spar in a vacant lot in a freestyle that’s provocative energy pulls inspiration from classic radio sets from across the water.

It follows the release of Skripteh’s ‘Cradle to the Grave’, ‘Bandits’ and ‘Loyalty‘ in the last 12 months.
