Stormzy has made history and has become the first artist to ever chart with a freestyle in the UK! The big man from the 7 has released “WickedSkengMan 4” on iTunes and has incredibly charted at number 18 on the UK singles chart. The previous record was held by JME with his “96 F**keries” freestyle that charted at number 40.
Stormzy has proven time and time again why he is nicknamed “The Problem” with a MOBO award, BET award, and most recently a Rated award, with millions of views and now a chart record in the palm of his hands, surely this is only the start of bigger and better things that can only follow him into 2016. Big up to Stormzy.
Speaking on this outstanding achievement, Stormzy has been quoted as saying “Thank you to every single one of my supporters this week. They are the real winners; because with no label, and no radio play, there’s no way in hell I could of done this. It sounds very cliche; but from the heart… thank you. They’re like family to me. We’ve got a Grime freestyle into the UK Top 20, history for us all“.
