Summary

The #MERKY story so far.

Words by Stormzy.

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

In three 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.

Rise Up is Stormzy’s story, in his words, and the record of a journey unlike any other.

Excellence

There’s so many important lessons in this book, stunningly edited and highlighted in prose. I applaud it. It should be mandatory in education curriculum (and business schools) across the UK and beyond. We learn about leadership, the whole, giving the whole, what it means to strive for excellence, what excellence is, cognitive diversity, collaboration and teamwork, being brave, being humble, being black, being beyond boundaries, listening, learning... So much.

Listen to it.

I can’t wait for the next chapter.

#Real Talk

when I first decided to download this book I downloaded it only as a matter of interest to see what stormzy was about I'd already loved his music but I wanted to know a bit more.

in this book stormzy not only talks about his music and how he gets the job done but he does it in such an inspiring way that will take any non-believer or anyone who has a lack of self confidence in completely turn it on its head.

I recommended this to my boyfriend as well and he loved it and since this audiobook he is really started to hustle in his own business that he's trying to set up creating custom made jewellery.

this book is a must have for the younger generation growing up who are looking for someone to prove that actually you can come from anywhere and be a someone if you have a faith in yourself and a goal to achieve.

I would absolutely love to meet this man face to face and have a deep in depth gushing about faith and Gould and rising above the rest.

Excellent and inspiring story!

I loved istening to each member of the team tell their own story about how they came to be as individuals and as a team. A really great read and I'm excited to hear what the future hold for #merky

Stormzy Tells An Amazing Story!

I love it! Not only will you learn things that you never knew about Stormzy, but you will get to see inside his mind and feel like never before. Stormzy is an immaculate and articulate character, with gifts that never could have missed the stage and a remarkable mind!
