2017 has been pretty eventful for Big Mike.
So far this year, South London Grime artist Stormzy has sold out his UK tour, teased his highly anticipated upcoming debut album 'Gang Signs & Prayer' and much more.
But last night he got something of an unwanted surprise after Metropolitan Police officers booted down his front door in an apparent burglary case.
Unfortunately though, there was no burglary and it seems that Stormzy was accused of burgaling his own house!
His tweet caused a huge flurry of responses from his followers with thousands of people sharing their thoughts with him and even revealing similar instances that have happened to them...
After staying silent on the matter for a while, the Met Police did eventually respond to Stormzy using their official Twitter account and simply said, 'If you wish to make a complaint please DM (direct message) us so we can take some more details. Thanks.'
Not sure this is exactly the response Stormzy was expecting and it only caused another flurry of tweets from people angry at what they perceived to be mistreatment of the South Londoner.
The story is clearly ongoing and with Stormzy claiming he wants compensation from the Police, we're sure this won't be the last we hear of this situation.
Stormzy's debut album Gang Signs & Prayer is set to be released on 24th February 2017 and features the likes of Wretch 32, Ghetts and J Hus. The lead single 'Big For Your Boots' has already hit the top 10 on the Vodafone Big Top 40, so with the extra buzz around his name from the back of this story, let's see whether his music enjoys a little boost.
