Jamie XX – I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times) (Skepta Remix)

Skepta is one of hip hop’s finest UK imports whose lyrical audacity is best displayed by the fact that he named his debut studio album Greatest Hits. The 32-year-old rapper and remix master just debuted his latest rework of Jamie XX’s “I Know There’s Gonna Be (Good Times)” on Drake and OVO co-founder Oliver El-Khatib’s Beats 1 OVO Sound Radio show Saturday night. While still in the hip hop realm, Skepta’s version transforms the slowed down percussion-based beat into a hyped uptempo rhythm with Popcaan’s intro vocals sped up and Young Thug’s verses swapped with his own lyrics.
