Skepta Reflects on His Unreleased "Little Demon" Collaboration With Frank Ocean
“The first 8 bars on that leak is so fuc*in’ hard but I don’t remember the rest of the lyric, kmt.”
British grime legend, Skepta, has openly reflected on a collaborative song that he made with Frank Ocean back in 2018 entitled “Little Demon.”
Taking to his Instagram story on January 18 — a place where Skep often goes to vent — the Boy Better Know rapper spoke about the track he made with Ocean and the verse he provided. He explained how “fuc*in’ hard” it was, while also admitting that he couldn’t remember all of the lyrics.
“Every once in a while I think about my verse on “Little Demon” with Frank,” he wrote. “The first 8 bars on that leak is so fuc*in’ hard but I don’t remember the rest of the lyric kmt.”

Frank Ocean first teased “Little Demon” on Instagram in 2018 before the singer then played the record on his Blonded Radio show on Beats 1 and put it up for sale as a seven-inch single. However, fast-forwarding to 2020, Ocean’s website released an email explaining to fans that the vinyl release was canceled with no explanation why.
Since “Little Demon” no other Skepta x Frank Ocean records have been heard, however, if the song was to eventually be released, it would be expected to be one of the best transatlantic collaborations to date.
