The new track by Stormzy – Vossi Bop has to no surprise called out the Government and the previous Mayor of London Boris Johnson.
The video which features actor Idris Elba and filmed at many locations in the Capital including Westminster Bridge and Bank of England, sends out a hard message at today’s Government.
“Rule number two don’t make the promise, if you can’t keep the deal then just be honest,” he raps towards the beginning of the track. He then says “I could never die, I’m Chuck Norris; f*** the government and f*** Boris.”
In this hard hitting video Stormzy is soon after joined by dancers with briefcases and distinctly Boris Johnson blonde wigs – which are quickly discarded as he holds his middle fingers up to the camera.
The 25-year-old rapper from Croydon had previously waded in on politics, backing Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn in the 2016 election. He also called Theresa May a “paigon” and asked her “where’s the money for Grenfell?” during a Brit awards performance last year. Theresa May has since responded, last year saying she’s ‘Absolutely Committed’ to Grenfell victims.
Vossi Bop is Stormzy’s first new song in around two years, after his album Gang Signs & Prayer came out in 2017 and reached number one.
