With his much anticipated second album Stormzy breaks the mould of UK grime, and in doing so establishes himself as a major crossover artist.
Throughout the 16 tracks on Heavy Is The Head Stormzy delivers huge variety. Simultaneously Stormzy is able to remain true to his roots in the UK grime scene but also evolves the genre, driving it into mainstream pop stardom.
Lyrically the record harks pack to Stormzy’s early days as a witty, precociously braggadocious UK park poet. Which works wonderfully with the sparse, yet punchy, production elements.
To list the highlights of this record would require us listing more than we omit. So put simply, give Heavy Is The Head a spin.
