STORMZY🌪 USHERS IN ERA OF MILENIAL GRIME WITH DEBUT ALBUM “GANG SIGNS🤘🏽 AND PRAYER🙏🏽”
Stormzy is known as one of the most punishing MCs in the grime world, and he continues to solidify that reputation on Gang Signs & Prayers while also exploring new sounds and genres. The album features Ghetts, J Hus, Kehlani, Wretch 32, Raleigh Ritchie, and MNEK.
Upon release Gang Signs & Prayer received widespread acclaim from critics, Jordan Bassett of NME stated that Stormzy "delivers a knockout debut that’s brash and pensive in equal measure." Alexis Petridis of The Guardian praised the musical diversity of the album: "More startling, however, is the confidence with which other tracks shift into unexpected musical territory.
This hardcore, cut throat grime yout is not ashamed to get in his feelings on some of the tracks as he delves deep into a thought provoking religious and emotional space completely contradicting the traditional sound of grime. I mean with a co-sign from his idol Adele, you can’t deny the reach of his new sound.
