UK grime rapper Stormzy is back in the spotlight with the release of his newest song, “Vossi Bop,” along with the accompanying music video. The single is the rapper’s first new music since the release of his 2017 debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer.
The Henry Scholfield-directed visual showcases Stormzy around his hometown of London, which opens with the UK artist spitting bars in the middle of an empty Westminster Bridge. The clip then transitions and he’s joined by a group of young dancers while rapping in front of the Bank of England.
The sequence then pans to a group of his friends and other performers as they freestyle with bikes and cars. While rapping, Stormzy invokes actor Idris Elba, saying, “Man, I’m James Bond/trying to live my movie like I’m Idris,” before Elba himself pops up next to the rapper for a cameo appearance.
Enjoy the video above and expect to see more of the rapper this summer with his own 2019 MERKY Festival.
