As Stormzy prepares to kick off his biggest tour to date in Liverpool, Getintothis’ Amaan Khan brings the full lowdown.

With his debut long player set to drop later this month, Stormzy has announced plans to start his biggest tour to date at Liverpool’s O2 Academy on April 2.

Rarely does an artist become a huge sensation and carries on being one for years, before even releasing a debut album. Stormzy on the other hand did just that and became a grime sensation.

Emerging in popularity with releases of freestyles over YouTube titled WickedSkengMan and then solidifying his mark with the independently released EP Dreamer’s Disease, Stormzy has celebrated monumental chart success and recognition.
