Skepta talks about taking over from past generations

Skepta talks about taking over from past generations
It all began when Liam Gallagher threw out a tweet that said “Man like Skepta keeping it real got to stand for something as you were LG x” Once you get past the shock of Liam liking something, you could see it as a torch being passed (long after it actually was.) 
If that sounds silly, Skepta doesn’t think so, because he gave NME a wonderful quote about how he’s taken over from past generations: 
“I feel like the Earth is a re-print of a re-print of a print of a re-print. There are people who take on different objectives and missions in life. When you grow older, there’s a a void – and right now I’m filling a space where a lot of old rock, grime, hip-hop, punk artists left a vacant space. Everything has gone about the internet, everything has gone about the likes, everything has gone about social networking. I still have that…I can’t even put my finger on it, but I still have it.”
“I like that these places I’m taking of the people that I respect and these people before me…Of course they’re respecting – they’re in touch. Liam’s in touch, bro. You can see. Not everybody really knows what’s happening. It’s a presence, it’s apparent, I’m here. You can see it in there eyes, you can see it in Bowie’s eyes when he takes a photo, rest in peace. There are so many of them… We get it, and when we see people who get it, we know that they get it as well. I’m happy that I represent that.”
