It's a huge week for Stormzy. He's hot off the BRIT Awards stage where he performed with Ed Sheeran and today he's dropped his debut album 'Gang Signs & Prayer'. It comes off the back of a year of social media silence from the rapper who racked up millions of views with his WickedSkengman freestyles. This debut album is a step up for Stormzy. He's maintained that grime core but he's also branched out, collaborating with people from different worlds and dabbling in other genres. We took a listen (or 20) to the album and broke it down to show his rise and what's influenced the album.
'Gang Signs & Prayer' is out now, available to buy & stream here.
