If you haven’t already heard well then what are you waiting for?! ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ is out and topping the charts as one of the hottest albums out right now. Grime artist Stormzy really delivered with this album with the diversity and creativity of it all.
Some of the tracks in the album includes ‘Big For Your Boots’, ‘100 Bags’, ‘Cigarettes & Cush’ and ‘Blinded By Your Faith pt 1 & 2’. With features from other British acts Ghetto and Wretch 32 along with American artist Khelani. This album is definitely a problem!
The Bad Boys track featuring J Hus and Ghetts takes us back in Grime history. The clash between Ghetts and Bashy being played in the intro of the song.
The cover artwork for the GSAP album imitates the last super image of Jesus Christ. This is done with Stormzy in the middle of a long table alongside 8 balaclava covered people along side him, 4 to his left and 4 to his right with everything in black. An interesting point is that amongst one of the 8 masked people is a kid. Well this makes us question what it all means. Does Stormzy think of himself as Jesus Christ? Does he expect to be betrayed by one of the masked men? Is the kid a representation of Judas? We are just going to sit back and appreciate this creative artwork which is somewhat a modern twist on the Da Vinci painting.
It will be interesting to see what visual Stormzy will next bring out. His first visual released for Big For Your Boots was definitely something interesting with locations based in Woolwich Common and a Morleys chicken shop in Lee Green.
This year is looking good for Stormzy so far. He has shown us the strength of his Marketing strategy by doing free pop up mini concerts in different parts of south London.
We wait to see more from Stormzy #merky #problem. 🎶⚡
