South London Emcee Stormzy Travels to Japan for an Adidas Originals Collaboration with NIGO

Doesn’t matter if you’re across the pond in London or here in the states, Stormzy is becoming a household name with his aggressive style and clever wordplay. From singles like “Know Me From” to a freestyle recorded in a park titled “Shut Up” gaining over 27 million YouTube views, the South London jack of all trades is taking the whole world by storm.

Playing showcases at SXSW to tearing down NYC last night (see below), nothing compares to Stormzy’s recent trip to Japan for a collaboration with Adidas Originals and streetwear legend NIGO. Known for rocking trackies (track suits for those that don’t know), this collaboration celebrates British grime culture going worldwide.

More than just showcasing clothes, this Adidas Originals mini doc shines the light on Stormzy’s character and desire for putting South London and grime on the map while paying homage to Kano, Dizzee Rascal, Skepta, Chip and Wiley.  With multiple freestyles and performance footage, this should help you get familiar with one of the most exciting young talents in music right now.  Watch below along with some highlights from Stormzy’s headlining show last night in NYC.
