Vossi Bop

by Syd Briscoe

Stormzy: “Vossi Bop” - 3 mins 24s

Crown Prince of Grime Stormzy returns with a low-fi, skulking single which confirms he's staying true to his roots... no matter if people object to him playing Glastonbury. The accompanying promo takes place in an abandoned London - streets empty save for Stormzy and his compatriots.

As the lighting goes from day to night, so does the lyrical content ramp up in intensity. From dancers in blonde wigs accompanying a resounding "Fuck the government and fuck Boris" to cars being broken with bats when we're told to "mind your fucking business", it's clear that Stormzy didn't come to play so much as reclaim the throne.
