It helped earn her the top grade in her arts and science degree at University College London.

Amarie tweeted: “I graduated with a first class in my UCL dissertation on British Hip-Hop.

Stormzy and his works in and out of music were a huge part of it and I want to say thanks.”

The tweet caught the eye of Stormzy himself.

The rapper, from Croydon, South London, replied: “This is so sick, thank you for choosing me, that’s a great feeling and congratulations on your first.”

But the new University College London graduate was not completely surprised by the star’s response.

Amarie said: “Everyone knows Stormzy is such a cool guy who interacts with his fans.

“It was still so shocking and heart-warming to see that he actually did.”

Amerie’s dissertation was titled “That’s Not Me: An interdisciplinary analysis of the black male identity in British hip-hop.”

Part-time DJ Amarie always wanted to write her dissertation on hip-hop, but honed in on her topic after reading a paper called “How Hip-Hop holds Blacks back.”


She said: “It portrayed the genre and the artists in such a one-sided way.

“In this day and age, we’re seeing hip-hop artists start businesses, charities and change peoples’ lives for the better.

“I knew there was another side to the argument and I wanted to explore it.”
