A London-based MC with Ghanaian heritage, Stormzy launched his career clashing at youth clubs around his hometown. His performances evolved from grime-only music that showed a love of artists like Skepta to more rap-oriented material that reflected Stormzy's growing appreciation for artists like Drake. Late in 2013 he began uploading his ‘Wicked Skengman’ series of freestyles over classic grime beats; in 2014 he made his official debut with the EP ‘Dreamers Disease’. A year later he released the single ‘Know Me From’ along with ‘WickedSkengMan 4’, the first track from his ‘WickedSkengMan"’freestyle series and a Top 20 hit in the U.K.

Stormzy’s rise to the top has been rapid. In the last six months, the self-professed ‘child of grime’ has won a Mobo and become the first unsigned rapper to perform on ‘Later with Jools Holland’.
