Stormzy began rapping at the age of 11 against others at his local youth club. He studied for an apprenticeship, before pursuing a career in music, where he generated a lot of interest on the UK underground music scene. He went on to win a MOBO for Best Grime Act, and even launched a campaign to get Christmas number one in 2015. 2017 proved to one of the biggest years of Stormzy's career with the release of his debut album 'Gang Signs & Prayer' as well as a remix of Ed Sheeran's 'Shape Of You' hitting the No.1 spot.
