Ghetts And Skepta Collaborate For ‘IC3’
Ghetts Skepta IC3: Ghetts and Skepta are two of the more regarded OGs in UK hip hop however they’ve never hopped on a track together up to this point.
The song’s title “IC3” alludes to a British police identity code for “Black male.” Over a frosty beat, the two convey a stinging criticism of the racism that they have encountered.
Skepta explicitly addresses denying a MBE (an order of the British Empire award) from the Queen of England for returning home to get a chieftain title in Nigeria: “The Queen offered me the MBE/I said no and I raised my fist/I went home, got my chieftaincy/Now I’m back on the strip.”
Ghetts is comparatively started up: “Don’t tell me to go back where I came from while the queen sits there with stolen jewels/cool, I’ll go back with a chain on/and light up the place like I’m Akon/I got a bullet with your name on.”

Who would’ve thought back then
We’d be some powerful Black men
Back when we was in estates, I was trapped in trapping
Y’all don’t know how this impacted us
Can’t look a n**** when flats are us
Abandoned flats where the mandem trap
I took a few L’s in my Champion hat
Came back like a champion and landed jabs while being branded Black
