If you didn’t know already, this dashing young gentleman is UK rapper and all-around great guy Stormzy.

He’s best known for the grime masterpiece “Shut Up”, as well as winning Best Grime Act at the 2014 MOBO awards, and becoming the first rapper to chart in the UK with a freestyle.

And if you're still unsure, Stormzy also happens to be a fucking legend.

And should be treated as such.

1. Stormzy truly is a gift to the Snapchat gods.

@Stormzy1 you need to pree stormzy's snapchat asap 😭😭😭😂

2. Seriously.

3. And he's not afraid to bare his true self to his fans.

Too real.

4. He offers some very insightful and inspiring advice on Twitter.

5. And it's advice that could be useful to all of us, tbh.

6. He's just as much of a massive fan of Adele as the rest of the planet.

Here he is living his best life in a top only a true Adele fan would have.

Bruddah @Adele you got me in my feelings Kmt 💔

And here he is living his best life jamming to an Adele song.

7. And when Adele dedicated a song to him at her O2 London show, he damn near lost his mind.

The caption reads: "Bro on my life I'm bugging right now how can I just be chilling then Adele says the next song is dedicated to me then she sings "make you feel my love" bro am I dreaming right now. Nothing can steal my joy right now this woman is such a g. This has made my year I swear to you man is dreaminggggggggggg wtf lol bmt wtf"

8. Plus, Adele loves him just as much back.

Because she knows a legend when she sees one.

9. Stormzy has a wonderfully open relationship with his fans. Left your ticket at home? No worries, Stormzy's got you.

He is selfless and kind, much like a saint.

He is selfless and kind, much like a saint.

10. He helps make people's dreams come true.

Deno Driz

When Stormzy saw a video of 13-year-old Deno Driz singing with his friend Jason, he immediately asked where they were from, and invited Deno into the studio to feature on his album.

And it's beautiful.

11. Nando's will gladly just invent burgers for him.

Nando's didn't actually add a #MERKY Burger to the real menu, but it doesn't take away those three seconds of hope when we all thought it was real.

Nando's didn't actually add a #MERKY Burger to the real menu, but it doesn't take away those three seconds of hope when we all thought it was real.

12. And it seems like whoever controls the Nando's Twitter account is a real big fan of Stormzy.

13. He launched his own campaign to make his track "Shut Up" the Christmas No. 1.

Nah fuck this #ShutUpForXMasNo1 LET'S DO THIS BUN X FACTOR!!! 😂 https://t.co/RvpK8mnkt7 RT!!!!

And it worked so well that he ended up placing at No. 9 in the UK top 40.

14. Without Stormzy, this phenomenal performance would never have existed.

Bruddah...I've seen a lot of strange things in my life, but this has gone and fucking topped it. #OiRudeboyShutUp 😂

15. And if you search hard enough, you may be able to find an item of his clothing at an Oxfam near you.

16. He casually chills with David Beckham from time to time.

No big deal, the Beckhams. Not a big deal at all.

No big deal, the Beckhams. Not a big deal at all.

17. And, of course, he brought his mum to a talk he was giving at Oxford University.

Because it's only right.

Because it's only right.

18. Basically, Stormzy is the hero you never knew you needed.

2015...what a year. God...your favour and mercy is rivalled by none. 🙏❤️

19. And achieved all of this success without even being signed to a label.

365 days, 31,076,323 views, 409,740 record sales & a million memories later Shut Up turns 1!😅🙏❤️ https://t.co/ymfUCfE1PE #1YearAnniversary
