Stormzy shares a new freestyle called "Shut Up" via a new video.
Like a ton of other grime artists who were already well-established in the UK, Stormzy has gotten an unprecedented amount of press across the pond since Kanye West's "All Day" performance at the BRIT Awards earlier this year. Today, he comes through with a new freestyle that goes at the necks of anyone who's been calling him a "backup dancer" after seeing that performance. Watch the new "Shut Up" visuals above.
Backed by his crew, Stormzy leads them through some call-and-response bars, giving a very off-the-cuff performance that's elevated by his candor.
