A historic moment for British music.

Stormzy is one of the hottest grime artists in the UK. Live at the Brit Awards on Wednesday night, he took aim at Prime Minister Theresa May for her response to the Grenfell Tower fire that killed 71 people.

The 24-year-old winner of both Album of the Year and British Male Solo Artist used his tense live performance at the awards to deliver a livid, exceptional freestyle.

Stormzy, whose real name is Michael Owuo, criticized May for the government’s management of the fire that broke out in London at the 24-story Grenfell Tower public housing flats in June 2017.

“Theresa May, where’s the money for Grenfell?” he said. “What, you thought we just forgot about Grenfell? You criminals, and you got the cheek to call us savages, you should do some jail time, you should pay some damages, we should burn your house down and see if you can manage this.”

It’s not the first time Stormzy has put his support behind the victims of the Grenfell disaster, appearing with the likes of Robbie Williams, Liam Payne, and Rita Ora on a charity single.

Needless to say, Stormzy’s performance had people losing their damn minds.
