LEAKED: Stormzy, aged 8, Rapping on Camera for the First Time
His mum leaked it to Noisey
We don't pick up the phone to just anyone at Noisey, but when Stormzy's mum gives us a call, we know to answer after one ring. Like all good mothers, she was just calling to embarrass her son, and wanted to leak this footage to us from 2001 of an 8-year-old Stormzy laying down some pretty fire bars.
We had a guess at Little Mike’s lyrics below:
I rep south London, home of the brave
Hate homework, but I don’t misbehave
Hold my head high and I pull up my jeans,
And I spit bare rhymes in the school canteen,
I go hard like Nandos chicken and chips,
And I look fly in my Adidas creps,
Got told off for rapping by Miss Motherwell,
But I don’t care cos all girls smell,
I’m little Mike on the mic,
And I’m on the hype!
