Stormzy Takes Home The ‘Best Album’ and The ‘Male Solo Artist Of The Year’ At The 2018 Brit Awards

What a night it was for the South London rapper and the Urban scene as a whole…

It’s safe to say that the Urban music resurgence is finally complete. Not one but two Brit Awards was won by an artist from the scene and it’s a great sight to behold.

Stormzy capped off an eventful night with the Brit Awards for the ‘Best Album’ with Gang Signs & Prayer  and the Male Solo Artist Of The Year.

Speaking during his acceptance speech for the album of the year, Stormzy deemed the project the “the hardest thing” he had done but it’s clear to see that his efforts has paid off.

“I’ve never worked on something like this in my life. We made something I feel that is undeniable, that I can stand by today.” – he said.

It was an incredible year for Stormzy last year – ‘Gang Signs & Prayer’ made history by becoming the first Grime album to reach number one in the charts, definitely not bad for a debut album.

A huge congratulations to Stormzy on the wins and cheers to many more in the future.
