To coincide with Friday’s release of his fifth studio album, Ignorance Is Bliss, grime star Skepta sits down with his biological sister Julie Adenuga of Beats 1 Radio to discuss a wide-range of topics.

This is the first time Julie has interviewed her brother Skepta on camera, and with this LP being his most introspective yet, it couldn’t have come at a better time. In part 1 of the interview, the Boy Better Know founder discusses his career, his respect for Stormzy and Novelist, being an introvert, becoming a father for the first time, his thoughts on being in love, and so much more.

You can watch part 1 above, with the 20-minute part 2 going live next week on YouTube.

If you haven’t already, go watch Skepta’s music video for “Greaze,” it’s a goodie.
