    It's sad that the English language has been deduced to bruh nah and whoah in an interview. So musical people nowadays lack lyrical precision and cannot even narrate how they wrote a song in the presence of their rap idol. Wow! Sad but true i live in South london and the majority of these youths talk just like this. No command of the english langauge or white in inner city london talk like this. Okay in the streets not okay on a live show. The world is dumb n dumber.

                    Wow that's really amazing. I imagine that this has happened to dozens of British artists before. When they were afraid to say no to America and corrupted the meaning of their music in the process. Those artists never last because the music turns hollow and the hype goes away. This really makes me believe that Stormzy is going to be around for a long, long time. He will become a pillar of British music for generations. Just watch him do it.

                                        As an artist you can totally respect that. If it don’t sit right with the soul then it just don’t

                                                  Was it because jay z wanted to put his eggplant in your butthole for the collaboration. So you said no
