Stormzy Blasts UK PM Over Grenfell Fire In Blistering Brit Awards Freestyle

Fresh from winning two Brit Awards, south London grime artist Stormzy delivered a blistering freestyle performance calling out Theresa May over the Grenfell fire.

“Yo Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell?” he rapped on stage in the closing performance. “What you thought we just forgot about Grenfell?”

He continued: “You criminals, and you got the cheek to call us savages, you should do some jail time, you should pay some damages, we should burn your house down and see if you manage this.”

He also took aim at the Daily Mail, which last year accused the 24-year-old artist of “treating cannabis as ‘product placement’.”

“MPs sniff  coke, we just smoke a bit of cannabis, they’ll get me for this, so be woke … They tell is that we’re fucks, I try and bust the myth, but someone tell the Daily Mail that they can suck my dick.”

Honestly, the entire thing is a chill-inducing performance, and you need to watch it to properly appreciate.

Skip to 1:35 if you want to get straight into his freestyle, but also don’t do that, you’ll miss the rest of his performance.

It’s not the first time Stormzy has spoken out about the Grenfell fire, which left 71 people dead and a community shattered.

He performed at a gig alongside Robbie Williams and The Who‘s Roger Daltery last year to raise money for the victims, and a Glastonbury festival last year, told the crowd: “We urge the authorities to tell the fucking truth, first and foremost. We urge them to do something. We urge the fucking government to be held accountable for the fuckery, and we ain’t gonna stop until we get what we deserve.”


Also…. lol at this, specifically.

Stormzy fell to the ground when hearing that he’d won British Album of the Year, beating Ed Sheeran and Dua Lipa.

“I’ve never worked on something like this in my life,” he said, of his album Gang Signs and Prayer, the UK‘s first grime album to reach number one. “We made something that I feel is undeniable, that I can stand by today.”
