Stormzy Slams Boris Johnson In Passionate Election Speech
Stormzy has posted a video on Twitter urging his fans to vote for Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party in today's general election.
In the video, the grime artist says he's never voted as he thought it wouldn't make a difference, but tells fans that this time it's different.
He says that he has never trusted politicians but says that Jeremy Corbyn is a 'man of hope', before calling Boris Johnson a 'f***ing p***k', referring only to him as 'the other guy' - refusing to say his name.
He said that everyone watching needs to make sure they have voted by the 10pm deadline tonight.
In his powerful message Stormzy said: "Today it's very, very important that you vote. I know a lot of people are saying that but hear me out, the man is never wrong.
"The man has always looked at politicians and thought 'I don't trust you lot, you don't do anything for me or my community, or my circumstances, or my mum's circumstances'.
"But for the first time in my 26 years there's a man who I trust and I wouldn't use my platform like this to say that if I didn't wholeheartedly think that.
"It's very clear as day, and clear cut, that Jeremy Corbyn is a man of hope, a man of justice, and a man of equality.

The Croydon-born musician and songwriter has already proven his influence on the electorate. After he took to social media to encourage his followers to register to vote, a huge 351,000 people registered on the deadline in November.
In an Instagram post last month, he said: "I will be registering to vote and I will be voting for Jeremy Corbyn. There are several reasons as to why I'm voting for him."
He added: "I also believe it is criminally dangerous to give the most powerful role in the country to a man who has said that the sight of a 'bunch of black kids' makes him 'turn a hair', compared women in burqas to letterboxes and referred to black people as 'picaninnies' with 'watermelon smiles'.
"I think it's extremely dangerous to have a man with those views as the sole leader of our country. These are all MY views, I don't care for your love or hate for them.
"I just think it's important that we all register and go out and vote. And I think it's important that we use our vote to make sure that the person who runs our country for the next four years is someone committed to doing what is right.
"GO OUT AND DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND TRY YOUR BEST TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND WHO IT IS YOU'RE VOTING FOR."
The deadline to vote is 10pm tonight. You DO NOT need your poll card or any ID (except for in Northern Ireland). All you need to do is give your name and address.
