Raised in Croydon, Stormzy calls himself “a child of grime” who rejected slick US hip-hop for Britain’s harder, grittier scene. At the age of 11, he was winning rap battles at his local Youth Club, Rap Academy, and his charismatic freestyles have earned him a huge following on YouTube.

The first unsigned rapper to play Jools Holland, he also won a MOBO award this year on the strength of a solitary EP – The Dreamer’s Disease.

“Lyrically on the top of his game and a real music man at heart; as he manages to be accessible without having to dumb down his content I believe Stormzy will help take Grime culture to a bigger audience without compromise.” MistaJam, Presenter, BBC Radio 1 & 1Xtra.
