“Music was in his blood,” says the documentary’s synopsis. “Growing up around like-minded individuals they set out to pioneer a whole new musical genre that became known as Grime.
“From the streets of Bow, East London, to sold-out venues across the world, Shaun Lewis, aka Stormin MC, touched countless lives through his words, his sound and his irresistible energy.
“His meteoric rise seemed to have no bounds, until he was given news that would rock himself, his family and the music scene; he was diagnosed with cancer. ‘Hype Master’ is an intimate, humanistic portrait of an artist who never stopped fighting.”
