Rise Up: The Merky Story So Far by

Stormzy and Jude Yawson


July, 2020







Meetups 14th & 28th July

“Rise Up gives you the inside scoop of Stormzy’s journey to stardom from the streets of Croydon to headlining Glastonbury. It showed me the level of dedication and raw emotion that goes into passion projects like an album and how to build a movement around a disruptor brand like #Merky.” Tom, RBC member

How do you create something from nothing?

How do you progress without compromising who you are?

How do you strive for the future without forgetting the past?

Where will your ambition take you?

It’s been a long time coming, I swear…’

In four years Stormzy has risen from one of the most promising musicians of his generation to a spokesperson for a generation. Rise Up is the story of how he got there. It’s a story about faith and the ideas worth fighting for. It’s about knowing where you’re from, and where you’re going. It’s about following your dreams without compromising who you are.
