Even if you accept the existence of black music in this country, we have had all the UK Garage and Hip Hop we are ever going to need. What does this guy add other than more degeneracy?

At best he is a minority interest in the back streets of South London, but certainly there is no way he should be given a platform at Glastonbury.

I dunno, I find MC Devvo and Genno D more culturally relevant tbh

But Glastonbury can platform who they like if it sells tickets.

Only relevant to a tiny portion of London. Nothing to say for the majority of middle england.

If no one liked Stormzy he wouldn't be famous. You may not like him or his songs but others do lmao
Just don't listen to his songs and move on.

He isn't even the best of the black community, which speaks volumes of how degenerate this country now is. There shouldn't be any black music here, even Disco Polo is more relevant.

Which is how the locals of most country's react to foreigners. Even Japan, Singapore. Why should they be here? We were never asked about black immigration.

A lot of things make up British culture. We are famously multicultural. Grime is one of these things, and Stormzy is the mainstream face of Grime.

Not that I care for the genre, but it's as British as 3am Kebabs, Somerset Cider, and Greggs.

Why should you be here? I bet you don't contribute anything to society let alone pay taxes. Wasteman.

If you are worried about low skilled immigrants taking your job, you should probably worry about your own career prospects, more than anything else.


To say this sort of thing is ignorant, and trolling. We facilitated the slave trade for a long time, and our Caribbean brethren have as much right to be here as anyone else.

Totally wrong, the foundations of most rock and disco music lie in European folk tradition. The 4/4 beat is inherently white. Black culture was imposed from the 60s onwards.
What? I never mentioned Rock or Disco. The roots of those lie in Blues, Soul, and Funk.

Stop Race Baiting.

Why should any native of any country be where they are?

Immigration is a privilige. The political elite imposed this on the British people. We never voted for any of this.
