Joseph Junior Adenuga, aka Skepta, was born in Tottenham, London, to Nigerian parents. The rapper leaped full-fledged into music after decimating opponents in a rap battle, besting the talented Tempa T in the finals. He rose to prominence as a member of the grime collective Roll Deep. In 2010 he hit the Top 40 lists with his singles "Rescue Me" and "Bad Boy." When America's "Bad Boy," Diddy, wanted to explore the grime scene, he connected with Skepta, who remixed his Diddy - Dirty Money hit "Hello, Good Morning" with a twist of grime.
