Hasbro has gifted Stormzy a custom version of Monopoly, after hearing that playing a round of the property board game was one of his favourite ways to wind down.

The personalised set includes nods to Big Mike’s achievements and visual flourishes from his Merky record label.

Unique Chance and Community Chest cards have also been included, encouraging players to collect monetary rewards for Wicked Skengman’s biggest and most well-known achievements.

One Chance card reads: ‘You’re headlining Glastonbury. Advance to Go. Collect M200’, while another allows players to collect M150 for his single Vossi Bop reaching number one in the charts. 

Community Chest cards include “Jay z rates you. Receive M100’ and ‘You’ve won 2 Brit Awards. Collect M100’. But another bids players to Shut Up – the name of the self-proclaimed king of grime’s breakout mainstream single – and pay out M100.

Stormzy, who has been busy this month in a clash with Godfather of Grime, Wiley, shared his custom Monopoly set with his 3 million Instagram followers.
