Stormzy has debuted a new film Gang Signs & Prayer, which was coproduced by The FADER and Somesuch. The Rollo Jackson-directed visual, which was made with support from YouTube, chronicles the MC's upbringing, including both narrative scenes and performances of songs from the London native's debut album of the same name.
"Young youts like myself, that grow up in the hood, we often don't know that we are actually the masters of our own destiny,” Stormzy says of the film. “There are so many things that steer us in the wrong direction however, we decide what happens in our own lives and like my album, I endeavored for this film to portray just that. Derived from my album Gang Signs & Prayer, and written and directed by the legend that is Rollo, I'll let the visual do the talking."
