Since breaking into the scene in 2015 with viral freestyle ‘Shut Up’, Croydon based rapper Stormzy has seen his career go from strength to strength, from being crowned a multi-award winning musician to single handedly becoming the voice of the people. Throughout his career Stormzy has launched #Merky books, volunteered in his hometown and given underrepresented individuals the opportunity to attend Cambridge University, this is just an example of how Stormzy is trying to enforce change for generations to come. 

#Merky Books 

In 2018 Stormzy teamed up with well known publisher Penguin Random House UK to launch the first of many books that would spotlight fiction, non-fiction and poetry books, specifically written by underrepresented voices across the UK. To launch #Merky books Stormzy released Rise Up: The #Merky Story So Far, outlining his inspirational story, while giving tips on how to win in life.

Talking Politics 

Never one to shy away from highlighting the topics closest to his heart, in 2018 Stormzy took to the Brit Awards stage to perform a freestyle. The performance saw Stormzy call out the former prime minister Teresa May, demanding she takes accountability for the awful Grenfell Tower aftermath.

Cambridge Scholarships 

Teaming up with HSBC bank in 2018, Big Mike launched the Stormzy Foundation, a scholarship that provides financial support for black students who wish to attend Cambridge University. This program specifically shines a light on the ever-growing talent of black students across the UK, exclusively opening up opportunities for students to attend the prestigious university while not being burdened with repaying the loan.
