A rant against the (wo)Man always goes down well in the music biz because it appeals to the utopian naivety of young minds. It's much easier to part kids from their money if you can get them to believe there are simple solutions to complex problems like poverty and illiteracy.

The fact is however that the victims of Grenfell are being very well looked after by the Govt/Council and the donations that the public made.

Contrast that to treatment of the Bangladeshi workers that make the Nike trainers, tracksuits and iPhones that Stormzy and his ilk idolise. Those people labour long hours in poor conditions for meagre pay and rights.

Stormzy seems like a decent bloke and his rant may have been spontaneous, but the beneficiaries of his words won't be the downtrodden, it will be the record companies who know popular music is all about monetising youthful desire.
Welcome to the 'Rebel Sell' - one of the slickest and most cynical bits of marketing in the modern era, 'This is what a feminist looks like' was the apogee -and all at the expense of the SJWs, which makes it all the funnier. Though the poor sods at the bottom of the supply chain may struggle to see the joke.

Its sheer poetry.

Call me gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Check one-two, man skitzed again
******** you and a ******** crew
Getting gassed up by your ******** friends

It's like dem man woke up pissed again
If I buck these pricks again
I got goons and you got goons
But the difference is your shit pretends
My niggas don't talk or rap
No my niggas don't talk or clash
No my niggas don't talk they mash
**** boys, man are you talking smack?
They said Stormzy can't be the king of grime
Cuh he can't do radio sets
Let's be real, rudeboy
I would light up a radio set
Like really I can't stand these ******* pricks
I don't care about your ******* whip
Mum, if you're listening, close your ears
But tell them paigons suck my dick
I've had enough of them, they all piss me off
Had one chance they missed the shot
I link up Flipz, then we burn your bridge
Then we laugh about it and split the prof

Call me gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Check one-two, man skitzed again
******** you and a ******** crew
Getting gassed up by your ******** friends

I think I just got dissed again
Think I care who this offends
Run up on man like [?]
Slap that through your shit defense
And I can still get a box imported
Said don't worry about the beef it's sorted
My man said he's a real gun shooter
Then my brother said rah, that's awkward
My mans never been bad that's bullshit
Two weeks in the top 10 who called it
Christmas, I went to war with the corporates
Like big ups the ones that caught it
I do rap, then I do grime
Then I do rap, then I sing and I roll right back
They said you ain't gonna blow like that
Who gives a ****? you know like that
Ice in my cup come cold like that
Woah, we ain't even close like that
You know my style, know my stats
Don't talk bad if you don't talk facts
If I sign now what's the buyout clause
1 top 10, 5 sold out tours
Might fling a mixtape out when I'm bored
My life's okay, how about yours?
Brother, I'm good, I stay with the lord
Bible carrier, that's my sword
Matthew 12, so I don't talk
John 19's why I never got caught

Call me gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Check one-two, man skitzed again
******** you and a ******** crew
Getting gassed up by your ******** friends

Back now man I've missed the pen
Had one shot you missed the pen
Bad man yutes, with their bad man ways
What they wish for me, I don't wish for them
I don't pay them fools, never been told
[?] outside Elliott school
Let me get a little bit of Henny I'm cool
Many have come but many did fall away
What? You thought I was the one?
I was fourteen trying to buy me a gun
Most niggas doing what I did back then
So now I thank God for the guy I've become

That's gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Check one-two, man skitzed again
******** you and a ******** crew
Getting gassed up by your ******** friends
Yeah it's gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Check one-two, man skitzed again
******** you and a ******** crew
Getting gassed up by your ******** friends

Yeah it's gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Yeah it's gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
Gunshot Mike or Mr Skeng
You had one shot and you missed the pen, and that's...
It's not real poetry because it doesn't mention binfantry.

Whilst I ain't down wiv da kids music n stuff now'a'days, some modern people I do like are Ed Sheeran and Rag n Bone man. They can both put out a couple of good head nod tunes.

But, I think proper music and rock n roll life style stopped when Oasis stopped. It all went shit n snowflake after then.

I'm off to listen to a bit of Jefferson Airplane and Frankie Valli and the four seasons (the night and Beggin you. Classics!).
You might be surprised at some of the stuff being produced today. Better than that Beatles tribute band from Manchester ;)

Not really, just an observation.

I await your next lip quiver induced screenshot of an icon.
Quiver away champ.
Probably the only think in your life you've ever won

Stormzy is an urban performance poet who originates from Croydon. His work is expected to become part of the Western canon, with educators looking to include it on the A Level English Literature syllabus next year.

His edgy, contemporary lyrics provide an insight into the racism faced by young black men in London and are an incredibly moving social commentary. His songwriting has led to favourable comparisons to John Lennon from critics.

As a social and human rights activist he is well respected for lending his voice to community issues and is a vocal critic of the government. He personally intervened to pay for the funerals of all the Grenfell tower victims, earning him praise from the Pope who said "Stormzy est bonum".

When not being the virtue signalling darling of the left, he likes glorifying gang culture, commentating on subjects in which he has no experience and generally being a ****.
Until the last line I thought that was a find from Pseud's Corner.

I was most impressed by the boy racer mobile that I saw driving though the local shopping centre a few weeks ago. Although the windows were up, the stereo system was going full blast with motherf*cker booming out at regular internals.

The mothers with young children must have really appreciated rap culture...
