Stormzy recently teamed up with YouTube, Somesuch, and The Fader to create a short movie to accompany his chart-topping debut album, Gang Signs & Prayer. The beautifully shot short film was directed by Rollo Jackson and clocks in at under 20 minutes. It follows the touching coming of age story of “Thomas” to help illustrate the story behind the music. When describing the film to The Fader Stormzy said,
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. 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.
