He's not pleased.

Stormzy has slammed NME Magazine for allegedly putting him on the cover of their latest issue, which focuses on depression, without his permission.

The Grime MC embarked on a lengthy Twitter rant after seeing an image of himself on the cover with the words 'Depression: It's Time To Talk' underneath.

Labelling the publication "the biggest bunch of sly, foul PAIGONS", Stormzy argued: "Using my face as a poster boy for it to sell your magazine is so foul and below the belt,"

"I will never respect you lot," he added.

NME were quick to respond to the rapper, stating their apologies before insisting that their intentions were not to "shift copies".

However, the 'Gang Signs & Prayer' star continued to call out the publication, stating that they are "NOT a non-profit organisation."

NME are yet to respond to the rapper's comment.

In related news, Stormzy's debut album has achieved Gold certification after debuting at number one on the Official UK charts.
