Stormzy has dropped a brand-new freestyle track, ‘Angel In The Marble’. This track marks his second standalone banger released recently, hot on the heels of his sick collaboration with RAYE, ‘The Weekend’.
“Now look at me, chiseled like da Vinci reappeared in ‘93,” he raps. “I found my inner Preston and I went and set him free. Now we the black Beatles, let it be.”
The dope visuals for ‘Angel In The Marble’ was shot during Stormzy’s epic 30th birthday bash, #TheMikeGala. The guest list was lit with heavy hitters like Louis Theroux, Dina Asher-Smith, Skepta, Judi Love, Burna Boy, Danny Dyer, Alison Hammond, Ghetts, Wretch 32, and a whole bunch more. Hit that play button and vibe to the track!

“There’s a difference between doing music at 22 and when you’re about to turn 30.” Stormzy recently said in an interview. “It’s the kind of peace and stability and stillness you can only get from maturity. You lose all the nervous shivers and the anxiety; you shake it off because now you’re a grown man coming into your skin.”
In a power move, Stormzy came through last week with a major commitment. He’s hooking up 36 talented Black minds at Cambridge over the next three years, all thanks to his game-changing Stormzy Scholarship that he kicked off back in 2018.
These future leaders will be blessed with a solid £20,000 scholarship each year to handle those tuition bills and keep their grind strong, courtesy of Stormzy’s #Merky Foundation and the heavyweight player, HSBC.
“For a further 30 black students to have the opportunity to study at Cambridge University – the same year we celebrate five years of the scholarships’ launch – feels like an incredible landmark moment,” the grime star told BBC News.
Prof Bhaskar Vira, pro-vice-chancellor for education, also said he was “delighted” the collaboration was continuing.
“We know these scholarships are truly transformative in the opportunities they provide and we look forward to welcoming more Stormzy scholars to Cambridge over the next few years,” he added.
