Stay tuned for more Stormzy news as it develops.

Ahead of the release of ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’, Stormzy spoke of his big ambitions in an interview with The Guardian.

“This album is good, this is incredible, this is heartfelt, this has been put together so well, so strategically, so neatly, so creatively,” he said. “So respect me the same way you’re going to respect a Frank Ocean or an Adele.

“I find it strange and uncomfortable to aim for anything less than the greatest. That doesn’t even make sense for me, that. If I was going to be an engineer or I was going to be a baker or I was going to be a fireman, why would I not aim to eventually be the greatest at my job? I’ve never understood why I should just try and be the best rapper in London, or even the best rapper in the UK. I don’t want to be the best rapper in the UK. I want to be the best artist in the UK.”
