Dizzee Rascal and Skepta unite for heavyweight collab cut ‘Money Right’
Dizzee Rascal and Skepta have combined forces for a trap-powered new single called “Money Right.” The grime kings trade rapid bars about methods of money management – at least according to two of the most successful UK rappers of all time. The beat is a prime playground for the stars, serving deep south subs and hard piano licks. Each verse is deft and effortless, and by the halfway point, it’s easy to assume the two have been making monster tracks together for years.
The collab arrives as the lead single from Dizzee’s recently announced EP, Don’t Gas Me. Speaking to Julie Adenuga on Apple Music’s Beats 1 show, Dizzee Rascal dished details on the collaboration’s genesis from a night the rappers happened to be making music in the same building.
“[Skepta] showed me the instrumental for this and I stood up,” Dizzee Rascal said. “I said, ‘Nah, we have to do this.’ I understood it. It’s one of them ones that everyone our age or above would think, ‘Why didn’t I do that?'”
