This past week, South London star Stormzy delivered a new visual for his track “Cold,” the latest to be taken from his chart-topping, Gold debut album Gang Signs & Prayer. While much of the project sees Stormzy dwelling in the Hip-Hop spectrum, “Cold” is one of the harder Grime tracks that sees the artist fly-talking and having fun over production from Fraser T Smith & Swifta Beater:
Let me tell you ’bout the days I was running on a hype like
Who are you? Where you been? Where your snow line?
Where your stacks? Where your strap? Where your crow line?
Big pump, don’t stunt when it’s showtime
Kinda funny how I didn’t need a cosign
Shut your mout, you ain’t squeezing
P***y boy, I just leave him
I’ve been cold the whole season
I should call my next one “Freezing”
Touch the mic, then just wheel ’em
You man have got too much feelings
In the clip (which comes courtesy of Floyd Sorietu and Kaylum Dennis), Stormzy raps in a slow flurry (literally and figuratively speaking), interspersed with shots of various youth exhibiting importance; we see young kings, young doctors, young leaders and young athletes. Music with an excellent message.
