Gracing our second cover is “Stormzy a Briton that represents the best of the country today,” says editor-in-chief IB Kamara for the HOMEGROWN issue cover star.

Back in the studio working on new music in the run-up to his 30th birthday, he reflects on his part in a cross-generational, globe-spanning story that's got the world on fire.
