Alongside an updated music visual.

After releasing his latest single “Bet” featuring Michael Phantom just a few weeks prior, up-and-coming UK Grime and hip-hop artist Octavian has now enlisted Skepta for a new version of the now iconic head-bobbing track.

Toting his usual raspy sound and fastly-laced verses, Octavian fits fluidly against Skepta’s deeper, slower-paced flow. Essie Gang’s Michael Phantom equally pairs nicely — hitting the right marks between the contrast of the other two artists, making the cut a well-crafted hard-hitter. The updated video stays true to the original, keeping the same black and white visuals yet enlists a variety of extras alongside the UK Grime legend.

Check out the video above, and let us know your thoughts on the added verse.
