And grime artist Stormzy says he's up it.

Yes, the MOBO award winner (and one of JOE's favourite musicians at the moment) announced his interest in entering the political arena.

The grime MC, who had a banner year last year following the releases of Shut Up and It's Not That Deep, admits that while he's political knowledge may be limited, he's more than willing and able to help.

After a few tweets, Stormzy was away, and a new grassroots political campaign was formed.

Within minutes the hashtag #StormzyForPM started trending, as fans began to flock to a true alternative political candidate.

One fan mocked up a fresh political poster for Stormzy with excellent slogans "Make UK Merky" and the Shut Up lyric, "If You Don't Rate Me, Shame On You."
