‘Gang Signs & Prayers’ may be his first album, but Stormzy is far from a newcomer; in the last few years his bold and addictive grime has come to dominate the music scene. The freestyle talent that made him an icon at venues across the country went on to make 2015 track ‘Shut Up’ the first freestyle to ever reach the UK top 40. Since then his career has erupted, and in February ‘Gang Signs & Prayers’ debuted at number one on the album charts.
