Stormzy had his own little crew, named DDB, and hisfirst experiences of clashing came thick and fast. It was in these adolescent years that the themes, styles and swagger of the Stormzyyou hear today were forged, the all out attack bars that mix cheeky, cocky and fiery in a formidable MC concoction. “I had proper clash bars back then. I got that style from an older MC called Charms. Hewas like my mentor and he used to spit like that. I clashed him once outside a youth club, and he schooled me.”

Music at this point was just a hobby though, something he did with his mates. He was a one man band, doing his own promotion and taking hisown bookings (“I would reply in the third person”). But, aged 20, he decided to make the leap, and do music for real. He launched a YouTube freestyle series titled “Wicked Skengman” in late 2013, in which he would spit over classic grime beats and put the videos online. A debut EP, Dreamers Disease, soon followed in 2014, showcasing a range of styles that epitomised his artistic open mind. “Forever” wasa forlorn R&B track, not unlike theslow jams his sister had blasted in his youth, and “Jupa” was a bashful afrobeat song.

“For some people where I come from, what I’ve done is already unbelievable,” says Stormzy. “But we can all doit if we focus and cut out all the bullshit. You can go on the be something when all odds are against you. You can do it quick, and effectively. Just make your mark and step in the game.”
