Grime artist Stormzy wins big as artist of the year at the BBC Music Awards 2017 

This not only a huge win for the south London MC who's BBC Fire In The Booth freestyle has over 11 Million views. This is a huge win for Grime music which is still in its early stages on a worldwide stage. Grime is in essence a U.K form of rap with beat patterns and BPM's that are entirely different from American Hip Hop. It was started in the early 2000's and, although its a huge form of music across the world now in 2017, its still not entirely recognized by many radio companies.

Stormzy was the one and only grime artist to hit over 50 Million views in a single youtube post. showing you how small the genre still is after all these years. The only artist from the same genre to have surpassed that is U.K and Grime Comedian Michael "Big Shaq" Daapah who has accumulated over 100 Million views with his viral song "Mans Not Hot".

We can only watch now as this dope and fresh new form of music takes the world by storm and trust me your favorite rap artist's from Asap Rocky to Drake are already on this wave and have been making music and doing shows with grime artists for a number of years. This is not something to sleep on, and with platforms such as BBC Radio and Apple Music opening continuous doors for grime artists it only a matter of time before you become a fan of one.

Stormy himself has had a huge year taking home 3 Mobo Awards, Performing at Glastonbury and Securing the BBC artist of the year bag. Upon winning the award Stormzy said:

"I'm actually blessed to be able to say that I'm an artist that's managed to be regarded as someone that's worthy of this award.
           I don't know what the future holds for me but I'm definitely ready for it."
