JME is bringing Grime MC FM to Lovebox and Parklife festivals this summer.
The legendary London MC, co-founder of the Boy Better Know label, released his first solo album in over four years, 'Grime MC', in November last year. Grime MC FM is the associated live project, which looks to recapture the scene's original vibe.
Stormzy is set to do a bible reading as part of this year's Christmas day TV coverage.
Closing BBC One's Christmas day coverage, the London grime trailblazer, born Michael Omari Jr, will read a story from the Book of Luke about angels heralding the birth of Jesus to the shepherds. It will be broadcast at 11.50pm.
Following the reading, south London boys' choir, Libera, will perform Basque carol 'Sing Lullaby'.
Stormzy will embark on a 55-date world tour in 2020.
Following the announcement of his album 'Heavy Is The Head', slated for release on the 13th December, the London MC has announced a world tour, performing 55-dates in Asia, Australia, North America, and more.
Mr. Mitch has shared a free download of previously unreleased dubs in a file drop.
The 15 tracks now available for the first time were produced between 2012 and 2015. Many have never been heard before, with others winding up in the music collections of select DJs but failing to formally find the light of day.
The package comes with a text file named 'HEY READ ME'. Here's what the revered music maker, whose back catalogue spans grime, techno, dancehall and beyond, had to say:
Stormzy has called for Tory MP Jacob Rees-Mogg to resign following his comments about the 2017 Grenfell tragedy, in which a tower block blaze claimed 72 lives in North Kensington, London, as a result of flammable cladding used on the outside of the building in a bid to reduce costs.
Rees-Mogg, currently leader of the House of Commons, caused outrage this week after suggesting victims could have been saved if they used "common sense".
Master Peace is settled into a booth at The Courthouse Hotel in Shoreditch. Nestled amongst bare bricks and leather seats, the South London MC oozes an infectious confidence as he sips an apple juice, looking at ease in his suitably comfortable uniform of cargo trousers and checkerboard Vans, paired with a black top.
“YS was listening to stuff like Max B and French Montana, so I was hearing all of that. I wanted to be a contemporary dancer then, but a lot of things happened and my group kind of split up,” he tells us. “My brother and my mum kept asking me, ‘What are you gonna do after high school? You're just staying at home playing your XBOX’ and shit. I knew I had to do something.
His confidence could never be construed with arrogance. Peace is self-assured, but endearing. He’s not cocky, and pushes himself constantly. “Keep Hush was a way to test myself,” he says. “If people pull up when I’m the headline, then I know I’m doing the right thing. I was worried. I thought, ‘Fuck. What if people don’t turn up?’. A lot of people wanted to come who were industry. We sold it out in two to three days. I had to take the risk.
