Stormzy didn't start making music this year, not at all. In fact in 2014 he was one of the only unsigned artists to perform on the long running BBC music show Late Night With Jools Holland. But 2015 has most definitely been Stormzy's year. It's been the year of his introduction to new audiences, both at home and in the U.S., with "Know Me From" bubbling up and Stormzy's hard work paying off when he won the BET Award for Best International Act.
Stormzy just does not drop weak tunes, and his YouTube freestyles prove he's got bars for days. With a clear, direct style, and the kind of personality that helps makes fans out of doubters, 2015 is just going to get better and better for this British MC.
