“Not the weather – rapper from Croydon”
Stormzy has featured on a new list of “youth slang translations” issued by police to ensure that they’re down with the kids.
Surrey Police shared the list as part of “youth language training” that will help them engage with young people in the Reigate and Banstead areas.
But among the usual lexicon, there’s an unexpected mention for Stormzy – who hails from nearby Croydon.
“Stormzy. Not the weather – rapper from Croydon”, the list confirms.
There’s also a mention for GOAT – which doesn’t refer to the four-legged farmyard dweller.
“GOAT = Greatest of all time”, the list confirms.
Although humorous, it’s a good thing that they’re fully acquainted with Stormzy’s name as his talent continues to soar.
After winning the Best British Album at the BRIT Awards earlier this year, the star teased that he’s in line for a headline slot at Glastonbury next year.
