Stormzy Gets Gigantic Mural in His Honor in Dublin
Stormzy is kicking off his U.K. tour tonight (March 29) in Dublin, Ireland. The city honored him in a special way by putting up a gigantic mural of the British rapper. Stormzy saw the mural on Tuesday (March 28) and shared it with his Twitter followers.
"Dublin, I don't know who's responsible for this but thank you and tomorrow is gonna be MAD," he wrote. "Kicking off the tour strong."
The rhymer is touring in support of his new album, Gang Signs & Prayer, which dropped in February. The LP debuted at No. 1 on the U.K. charts and set the record for the most first-week streams of a No. 1 album in the U.K. The grime artist topped the first-week streams of streaming giants like Drake and Justin Bieber.
