    Until this song, Stormzy embodied everything wrong with what the fusion of Pop and Rap/Grime was doing to the purity of the rap game but here he uses his politics-pun-heavy way of making the masses roar at the metaphors and jokes in the best way ever.

    He uses a style that has in the past been 'yeah, yeah, anyone could write that you are unoriginal and your flow is so broken' and converted it into a tactically cut-up flow where the pausing is intentional and regular makign it part of the flow and his simplistic puns are so utterly well-delivered that it doesn't matter anyway.

    It also was the first time he has made his deep voice meet a feminine beat and it goes so well together. His past beats were deep and strong like his vocals and made it unpleasant in vibe overall. Stormzy has gone from one of my least favourite Grime artists to one of the greats by this song alone being the threshold-crosser, he is going up and I look forward to his future stuff.

    Music is subjective.
