  1. Can you imagine Wiley being able to do that? Nope! And that's why Stormzy is the grime God, and Skepta is king, and Kano makes the best tracks…

    …you will always be the Godfather Wiley, if you can stay alive that long, that is

  2. This is how you debut Stormzy πŸ˜­πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ

  3. All these comments about how it’s good to see Stormzy getting noticed. I’m just tryna figure out why the backup singers are Millie rockin.shits fire 2:24

  4. Stormzy , if your reading this , please stay true to yourself , remember that’s what got you here in the first place πŸ₯‡. Don’t be a sell out to this demonic industry, you are a target now . Keep making bangers and elevating our young black youths , proud to say you represent our scene πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§(London) and I Wish you the best G πŸ€›πŸΏ

  5. He’s probably not got better at singing he just seems more comfortable trying to sing, he probs was afraid to try too hard before

  6. Man got on Jimmy Fallon. That’s major! Big up stormzy for representing the UK rap game like this! Mans definitely got the torch right now.

  7. I wrote this absolute legends teams biography, Rise Up: The Merky Story So Far. and I’m just so proud of him. Constantly. Check out Merky Books, he has a imprint with Penguin Random House, one of the worlds famed publishers of books, and he’s doing absolutely incredible things helping underrepresented stories come to fruition. They’ve released 3 books so far. And he has a scholarship with Cambridge where he sponsors 2 black students a year to study at the illustrious institution.

    What a God send this man is. I’m so glad you Americans are able to witness some Black British, South London, Croydon excellence. πŸ™πŸΏ

  9. I don't know why people are surprised this is his US TV debut. He is not big in the country at all – he has never had a single chart in that Billboard Hot 100.

  10. Imagine if he performed Wiley flow or still dissapointed πŸ˜‚ did Americans even understand a word he was saying ????

  11. Mans a legend CATCH UP US heavy is the head on ppl sleeping on STORMZY mans been reping UK thing for a minute Catch up for Mc's across the ponds sake.. #Merky

  12. I cannot stand his voice. He also looks far older than 26. I'm from England and we are not all taken in by the BBC brainwashing.
