Grime has conquered the Brit Awards!!! Stormzy broke through the mainstream music Front door last night with a double Award win that is a moment in music history that will never be forgotten. The Croydon artist won the ‘Best Male Solo Artist’ and ‘Mastercard Best Album of the Year’ Awards.
The humble Ghanaian gave a humbling speech and followed up with a performance of a freestyle that took shots at the Prime Minister’s treatment of the Grenfell Towers Tragedy and the Daily Mail for their constant degradation and hounding. Check out the clips below and also some reactions on Twitter.
Love you all, thank you, thank God, emotional, overwhelmed, speechless…gonna go have a drink and party with my family ❤️

Stormzy brought religion, politics, and road to the #BRITs Backed it for Grenfell, gave a shout out to Daniel Kaluuya & Jourdan Dunn, sang in the rain, and didn't get muted once. He's a legit national treasure
