Conducta has shared his UKG edit of Headie One's 'Ain't No Different', a floor-ready, 2-step take on the track featuring grime legend Stormzy and risen star AJ Tracey.
The track is landing at the same time as Conducta's remix of 'Sneak', which features on the 'Aluna X Kiwi' EP, a meeting of minds between the producer's Kiwi Records and Mad Decent/Because artist, Aluna.
Headie One has also announced the Edna Live Tour, starting in May 2021. Shows are currently set for Bournemouth, Bristol, Manchester, Liverpool, Newcastle, Leeds, Nottingham and London, among other cities.
Stormzy’s #Merky Books has announced the second edition of its annual New Writers’ Prize.
The publishing imprint, launched in 2018 by the UK rapper and Penguin Random House, focuses on platforming new literary talent from underrepresented communities.
Headie One has teased the first music from his forthcoming album.
Titled 'Edna', the project will be the London MC's full-length debut and follows his mixtape 'Gang' released in March this year, as well as a collaboration with Canadian rapper Drake.
Telling fans to expect 'Edna' to drop on Thursday (18th August) via a post on social media, Headie One also released a clip and video for album track 'Ain't It Different', featuring AJ Tracey and Stormzy.
Stormzy has announced a £500,000 fund to assist disadvantaged students.
London MC Stormzy, who recently shared plans to give away £10 million over 10 years to Black British causes and organisations, has announced the first donation from the allocated funds.
Stormzy, Little Simz and Dave are among the nominees for this year's Ivor Novello awards.
The annual awards, which serve as the biggest songwriting accolade in the UK and Ireland, were founded in 1956, and "recognise creative excellence in songwriting and screen composition."
Among the artists nominated are London MC Stormzy, who is up for Best Song Musically and Lyrically for 'Crown', co-written by MJ Cole and Jimmy Napes.
Stormzy will donate £10 million to black British causes over the next 10 years.
In a pledge announced today (11th), the London rapper, who took home a BRIT Award in February this year, revealed plans to donate £10 million across the next 10 years, to organisations, charities and movements supporting racial equality, black empowerment and social justice.
Dave has called Boris Johnson a “real racist” during his BRIT Awards performance this week.
The South London rapper added a new verse to his freestyle track 'Black', which focuses on obstacles and prejudices facing black Britons while celebrating excellence, leaving no questions over his feelings about the UK Prime Minister.
“It is racist, whether or not it feels racist, the truth is our Prime Minister’s a real racist / They say – ‘you should be grateful, we’re the least racist’ / I say the least racist is still racist.”
The nominations for this year's BRIT Awards have been announced, with Dave and Stormzy leading the list at four and three nominations respectively.
Both are nominated in the Male Solo Artist category, Album of the Year category (Dave for 'Psychodrama' and Stormzy for 'Heavy is the Head) and Song of the Year category (Dave for the Burna Boy-featuring 'Location' and Stormzy for 'Vossi Bop). Dave is also nominated for Best New Artist.
Stormzy has hit back at Wiley on a new track called 'Disappointed'.
It's a response to Wiley's recently shared diss track against Stormzy, 'Eediyat Skengman', which formed part of a wave of criticisms Wiley has sent out in the last week against other grime artists.
Stormzy's response, which came with a video only 24 hours after Wiley dropped his diss, sees him jump on Headie One and RV’s 'Know Better' instrumental with all manner of sends and the line, "I’m so big, the only thing bigger than me last year was Brexit".
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'.
