And he beat J Hus, Ms Banks, D-Block Europe, Krept & Konan and Potter Payper to win best hip hop act.

The rapper shot to fame with his 2017 debut album One Foot Out, which reached the top four in the charts.

His songs have racked up millions of listens on streaming platforms and he has collaborated with the likes of Dave, Ray BLK and SL.
