Emerging from the UK grime scene and ending up as a worldwide superstar, Stormzy is one of Britain’s most critically acclaimed artists.
Within five years of the release of his debut EP, he became a Glastonbury headliner, platinum certified, and an artist with a number one album. His latest record Heavy is the Head was described by The Guardian as “a grandstanding, soul-searching bid to crack the US – without losing that pugnacious south London voice”
Stormzy has become the UK’s leading exporter of grime and the country’s unofficial poet laureate.
