Grime artist Stormzy is having a bit of a moment. The South London rapper recently performed an amazing re-imagining of “Ultralight Beam” on BB Radio 1’s Live Lounge, then joined Ed Sheeran on stage at the BRIT Awards to perform a remix of “Shape of You”. And now his debut album “Gang Signs & Prayers“ has arrived.
This is the moment that I have been waiting for my whole life. I am now ready to certify my position as a credible artist and someone who is here for the long run.
Stormzy is known as one of the most punishing MCs in the grime world, and he continues to solidify that reputation on “Gang Signs & Prayers“ while also exploring new sounds and genres. The 16-track album includes features from fellow artists Ghetts, Wretch 32, Kehlani, J Hus and many more. Listen to the whole album via Spotify below.
Gang Signs & Prayers by Stormzy is out since the 24th of February, 2017 via Rykodisc. Order it here.
