Yes you read that headline correctly; a giant mural of the prince of grime Stormzy has appeared in of all places, Dublin. Little is known about how the mural of Stormzy came to fruition; as even Stormzy himself seems to slightly confused as to what was going on as you can see from the tweet below. The image is actually taken from the video to Shut Up which helped propel Stormzy into the mainstream after quickly becoming respected in the grime circles.
Clearly a fan wanted to memorialise Stormzy who has taken 2017 by storm (no pun intended). Following his debut number 1 album, Stormzy’s soldout headline tour kicks of in Dublin on the 29th. It is hard to imagine the tours first stop will not be extra special thanks to the artwork. If you were not lucky enough to secure tickets to the tour you can watch Big Mikey cover Kanye West’s Ultralight Beam in the Live Lounge below.
