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.

Brilliant insight into a team with force

Really loved this book. Though it was hard at times to keep track of all the voices, it was good to hear from the entire team their experiences. It's a brilliant insight into the music industry and Team #Merky's ethos and work ethic. A really brilliant and inspiring book

I absolutely loved Stormzy's book, all the people involved to help make #Merky what it is today promotes a sense of motivation and pride. Cannot wait for the 2nd book and see his story unfold into pure greatness.

A true royal family.

Well done to you and your team . Truly inspirational. Had bought the book then thought I'd return it and get it again at later date. Started it couldn't put it down. keep on doing what you're doing. An admiring and proud 55 year old black man. Thank you 🙏🏾

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!
