Stormzy has just become the first UK rap artist to feature on the cover on TIME Magazine.
Big Mike announced the news on his Instagram, “I’ve stared at this cover for a few minutes and it feels like one of those “how the fuckkkkk did man get here?!” moments.”
The rapper opened up on how it felt to feature on the cover “God’s favour and the ever lasting love and support you guys show me has elevated me to a place in life where this South London kid is worthy enough to grace the cover of the most prestigious publication in the World. This is a huge honour – one of TIME’s Next Generation Leaders. I wanna thank God for purpose – I say this because anyone who knows me knows how much I shy away from being anything other than “Mike”.
