South London grime MC Stormzy has been leading up to his debut album for a while now, but thankfully, after all the teasing he’s been doing the record is finally here. Gang Signs & Prayer features appearances from Ghetts, J Hus, Kehlani, Wretch 32, Raleigh Ritchie, and MNEK. The album has a number of previously released singles, including “Big For Your Boots.”
After staying out of the public eye for the most part of 2016 after releasing the single “Scary,” Stormzy has been determined to prove just how talented an MC he really is. Stormzy only announced the record earlier this month, quickly following it up with the fantastic video for “Big For Your Boots.” It might be a bit too early to say, but Stormzy has definitely lived up to the hype with Gang Signs & Prayer.
Recently, Stormzy appeared at The BRIT Awards to debut a remix of Ed Sheeran’s “Shape of You,” less than a week after covering Kanye West’s “Ultralight Beam” for BBC Radio 1’s Live Lounge series. Listen to the album below via Spotify.
