Stormzy is a musician from Thornton Heath, south London. In 2017 he won the BBC Music Award for 'Artist of the Year', and received two BRIT Awards for 'Male Solo Artist' and 'Best Album' in February 2018. His debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer, debuted at #1 in the UK album charts, the first ever grime album to do so. The album was subsequently nominated for the Mercury Music Prize and also won the Ivor Novello 'Album Award' in June 2018. He lives in London.

Charts the ascent of the grime MC... through a panoply of voices. Stormzy is adored. -- Kitty Empire * Observer, 'Books of the Year' *

A very important book... It is truly inspiring to read about the accomplishments of Team Stormzy, realised largely without money or expertise, but with bucketloads of intelligence and hard work. -- Will Gompertz * BBC *

The book is part of a wider plan to elevate black British culture to where he believes it should be. It's a manual demonstrating how big plans can become realities...
