Stormzy's Mum Releases Amazing Footage Of Him Rapping, Aged 8
Stormzy, King of Grime, smashed straight into the mainstream conscious this week when he teamed up with Ed Sheeran at the BRITs.
But the 23-year-old Shut Up rapper, who released his new album Gang Signs And Prayers on Friday, has had a massive influence on the underground music scene since he independently released his first EP, Dreamers Disease, in 2014.
So it’s probably a good time to go all “this is your life” and re-watch this amazing clip sent to Noisey back in 2015 by Stormzy’s – real name Michael Omari – Mum. The clip shows Stormzy cringing at a home video showing his eight-year-old self spitting some pretty impressive rhymes:
What a legend.
Some people are claiming it’s fake and was just an ad for his last tour. But look at it this way, either this is Stormzy at age 8 spitting some impressive bars, or you’re looking at another future master of Grime? Win, win…
