Stormzy has quickly shot his way up the charts, becoming one of the world's best-known grime artists. He flexed that power on Monday when he managed to bring out 350,000 young people to register to vote ahead of the British election on December 12.

On Twitter and Instagram, the superstar rapper encouraged the public to turn out for the election and vote for Labour Party candidate Jeremy Corbyn.

"It is very very very important that every single person who reads this goes and registers to vote. The deadline is 23:59 tomorrow, the link is in my bio. Do not just scroll past, don’t sit there and think 'my one little vote ain’t gonna do anything'—your vote is CRUCIAL. Your 'one little vote' can quite literally tip the scale for what will be the most important election of our generation," he wrote on Instagram and then shared on Twitter.

"Your 'one little vote' means everything, there were millions of people who thought their 'one little vote' didn’t mean s**t and now Trump is the president of America and we are leaving the EU. So your vote really does count," he added.

It is very very very important that every single person who reads this goes and registers to vote. The deadline is 23:59 tomorrow, the link is in my bio. Do not just scroll past, don’t sit there and think “my one little vote ain’t gonna do anything”—your vote is CRUCIAL. Your “one little vote” can quite literally tip the scale for what will be the most important election of our generation. Your “one little vote” means everything, there were millions of people who thought there “one little vote” didn’t mean shit and now Trump is the president of America and we are leaving the EU. So your vote really does count. I will be registering to vote and I will be voting for Jeremy Corbyn. There are several reasons as to why I’m voting for him - I would be here all day if I began to list them...but in my 26 years of life I have never trusted politicians or relied on them to be the bearers of hope and righteous people that we’ve needed them to be. And for me, he is the first man in a position of power who is committed to giving the power back to the people and helping those who need a helping hand from the government the most. I think Boris Johnson is a sinister man with a long record of lying and policies that have absolutely no regard for the people that our government should be committed to helping and empowering. I also believe it is criminally dangerous to give the most powerful role in the country to a man who has said that the sight of a “bunch of black kids” makes him “turn a hair”, compared women in burqas to letterboxes and referred to blacks people as “picaninnies” with “watermelon smiles”. I think it’s extremely dangerous to have a man with those views as the sole leader of our country. These are all MY views, I don’t care for your love or hate for them. I just think it’s important that we all register and go out and vote. And I think it’s important that we use our vote to make sure that the person who runs our country for the next 4 years is someone committed to doing what is right. GO OUT AND DO YOUR OWN RESEARCH AND TRY YOUR BEST TO LEARN AND UNDERSTAND WHO IT IS YOU’RE VOTING FOR. THE LINK TO REGISTER TO VOTE IS IN MY BIO. 💪🏿

According to statistics from the Gov.uk website,  366,000 people registered to vote on Monday, with nearly half of the voters under 25 years old.

This paled in comparison to the day before which only saw about 100,000 people register. 

In the rest of his post, Stormzy said he was supporting Corbyn because "he is the first man in a position of power who is committed to giving the power back to the people and helping those who need a helping hand from the government the most."

He went on to bash Boris Johnson, the current prime minister and Conservative candidate, who is heavily favored to win the election.

Stormzy's famous saying "F**k the government and f**k Boris" has become a rallying cry for people who are viciously opposed to Johnson's plan to remove the U.K. out of the European Union. 

"I think Boris Johnson is a sinister man with a long record of lying and policies that have absolutely no regard for the people that our government should be committed to helping and empowering," he wrote.

"I also believe it is criminally dangerous to give the most powerful role in the country to a man who has said that the sight of a 'bunch of Black kids' makes him 'turn a hair,' compared women in burqas to letterboxes and referred to Blacks people as 'picaninnies' with 'watermelon smiles.' I think it’s extremely dangerous to have a man with those views as the sole leader of our country," Stormzy said.

Despite his political preference, he said he wanted voters on both sides to register so the country has a clear understanding of where it stands. 

Corbyn thanked Stormzy in a tweet after receiving news about the voter registration drive.

Stormzy has since started his Grime4Corbyn movement ahead of the election.

"I think it’s important that we use our vote to make sure that the person who runs our country for the next 4 years is someone committed to doing what is right," Stormzy said.
