Stormzy Vossi Bop: ‘F*** the government and f*** Boris,’ star raps in new track | Ents & Arts News





Grime artist Stormzy has taken a swipe at the government and Boris Johnson in his new song, Vossi Bop.

“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.

“I could never die, I’m Chuck Norris; f*** the government and f*** Boris.”

Stormzy is then joined by dancers with briefcases and distinctly Boris Johnson-esque blonde wigs – which are quickly discarded as he holds his middle fingers up to the camera.

It is not the first time the 25-year-old musician has got political, famously using his appearance at the Brit Awards to question Theresa May’s response to the Grenfell Tower fire.

In a charged performance, he rapped: “Yo, Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell?

“What, you thought we just forgot about Grenfell? You criminals, and you’ve got the cheek to call us savages, you should do some jail time, you should pay some damages, you should burn your house down and see if you can manage this.”

Earlier this month, the star pulled out of the Snowbombing festival in Austria just hours before he we was due to perform, accusing organisers of racial profiling.

Vossi Bop, named after a viral dance move, is Stormzy’s first single since 2017.

The video was filmed across London locations including Westminster Bridge and the Bank of England.

You might also spot a cameo from Idris Elba – and the song cheekily addresses the speculation the actor will replace Daniel Craig as James Bond.







Aug 2018: ‘Bond rumour got out of hand’

“When I’m James Bond, tryna live my movie like I’m Idris,” Stormzy raps.

Fans are now hoping a new album won’t be far off, following on from his platinum-selling number one record Gang Signs & Prayer.

He is due to headline Glastonbury in June, along with The Killers and The Cure.
