If he keeps dropping tracks as good as ‘4PM in London’, who knows where he’ll be in 2020.

If he keeps dropping tracks as good as ‘4PM in London’, who knows where he’ll be in 2020.

It might have been the masterful mixing of grime and gospel on Gang Signs & Prayer that catapulted Stormzy from top of the grime game to top of the charts, but with latest track ‘4PM in London’, Big Mike has reminded everyone of what made him famous in the first place – the best freestyles in the game.

‘4PM in London’ uses the instrumental from Drake’s ‘4PM in Calabasas’ (see what he did there?), rapping about the disrespect he faces, how he got to where he is, and even dropping in a few references to J Hus, Lethal Bizzle and Paul Pogba for good measure.

The biggest news is saved until last though, with Stormzy almost casually mentioning in the closing line “I’ve been working fucking hard, the second album’s coming soon”.

In 2014 Stormzy was cycling around the car park of Croydon Ikea in the video for ‘Not That Deep’. In 2017 he released grime’s first no. 1 album. If he keeps dropping tracks as good as ‘4PM in London’, who knows where he’ll be in 2020. Jake Hawkes
