With their recent ‘Schooled By’ series, SBTV have been paying a lot more attention to real UK Hip Hop recently and turning their attentions to some of the more underground, and yet very highly acclaimed, artists on the scene. With Manchester lyricist/producer Skittles turning heads both in Hip Hop and d&b over the last year since the launch of his Poor With £100 Trainers album, and the whole of the Estate Recordings crew around him making really strong moves, the youth broadcaster recently popped into the Estate head quarters while on a trip through Manchester. Accompanied by a full live band, Skittles runs through some of his more well known classics such as Dot2Dot as well as showing off new bars in an incredible acoustic performance that switches between tracks effortlessly. D&B don DRS and ragga vocalist Fox also join him for a verse each. Check it out below.
