slowthai and Skepta have released a bone-chilling video for their new collaboration, “Cancelled.”
In the clip, the duo recreate scenes from an array of classic horror films, including American Psycho, Silence of the Lambs, Nightmare on Elm Street, Candyman and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre. The visual also features cameos from Kwes Darko, Krash and SAMO.
“When you’re not a certain way and people tell you who you are, you doubt yourself. If you’re fully against stuff and people are saying, ‘That’s you’—you can’t fathom it,” he said. “So, I’m sitting there, I’m in a dark headspace, and [Skepta’s] like, ‘This isn’t your defining moment, bro. Use this. Come out stronger, come out harder. Show the world what you’re about. Fuck all that worrying. Just be you and live your life. It’s rock and roll; you’re a rockstar.’ From that, we just banged out that tune.”
