Stormzy isn't impressed by the current government.

Stormzy labelled Prime Minister Theresa May a “paigon” live on stage at this year’s GQ awards. 

The ‘Big For Your Boots’ rapper, who was handed the best solo artist prize by Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn, slammed May during his acceptance speech at the Tate Modern in London.

“It’s so incredible to be here for everyone. Big up Jeremy Corbyn,” he began.

“I do want to use this to say that Theresa May is a paigon and you know what we're doing right now. 

"Yeah, trust me. Yeah, it's awkward when I say that isn't it, yeah?" 

He continued: “GQ man of the year award, solo artist of the year award. I'm so blessed to be here. I just want to thank god, thank my mum, thank my whole team. 

“I can't even believe it. Your boy is on the cover of GC, south London boy, this is incredible. Thank you so much, man. Love.”

The Grime MC has been very vocal about social issues in the past and recently slammed the Met Police for a recent tweet about London’s Notting Hill Carnival.

Earlier this year he also confronted radio station LBC over comments suggesting that his music influences knife crime in the UK.
