Drill's greatest storyteller

Plenty has been written about Headie One, the Tottenham rapper who’s become the poster boy of UK drill. Not enough of it focuses on just how talented the 27-year old is, the agility of his flow matched only by his keen eye for detail as a storyteller. It’s that winning combination that got his 2020 album “Edna” - named in tribute to his mother who died when he was still a child - to number one in the UK charts and catapulted him from breakout artist to stardom. Now he’s ready to be reckoned with not just as one of the best rappers in the UK - marrying street-smart bravado with dextrous creativity and lyrical vulnerability - but as one of the best in the world.
