Oh this? It’s just Manchester United legend Paddy Crerand spitting Stormzy lyrics

Not a bother to him

Darragh Murphy

Another day, another Stormzy story.

Exposure was what Stormzy wanted on the promotional tour for his debut studio album Gangs, Signs & Prayer and he’s received that in abundance as he’s found himself in the headlines throughout the week.

We’ve seen him absolutely smash it at the Brit Awards last week alongside Ed Sheeran, we’ve seen him react brilliantly to being informed of his footballer lookalike and his discussion on the subject of depression was outstanding.

Then he visited Old Trafford and was blown away when he met Manchester United midfielder Michael Carrick.

If he was starstruck by being in the presence of Carrick, we just know the grime heavyweight will love this effort from United legend Paddy Crerand.

Crerand treated us all to a few bars of the album’s lead single Big for your Boots and while the 78-year-old read the lyrics directly from a piece of paper, we’re almost certain that that was just for show as Crerand is known to be a massive Stormzy fan and knows the album off by heart.

Not too unlike the original, is it?
