Stormzy and Skepta are just two of the stars set to appear in a new YouTube Original documentary about the rise of GRM Daily, the most-viewed urban music channel in the UK.

YouTube has released a first look at the four-part series, released on September 28, which tells the story of the channel’s founder, Posty, and how he created a community for a new generation of Black British musicians.

Featuring a frankly star-studded cast, stars including Giggs, Julie Adenuga, Kano, Ghetts, Aitch, and Ms Banks are set to appear in the documentary series, titled Together We Rise: The Uncompromised Story of GRM Daily.

They’ll be starring alongside the likes of JME, D Double E, Zane Lowe and Dizzee Rascal.

In the epic trailer, the channel is described as an ‘evolution’ with Stormzy adding: ‘Just the holy grail of Black British music’.

‘GRM gave the power back to the artists,’ we’re told in the first look.

The trailer shows the series reflecting on the the beginnings of the channel and documents the moment it was unexpectedly terminated, before it returned in force.

GRM Daily founder Posty said he hopes to inspire new generations with the documentary.

He said: ‘It is exciting to be able to share this first glimpse of the documentary along with its story of the journey that GRM Daily has taken and how with, the help of artists and the community, collectively helped to put UK rap music on the map.

‘We hope it acts as an inspiration and kick off point for many new artists in the next generation of British music.’

GRM Daily was founded in 2009, and has racked up a following of more than three million.

It’s the most viewed urban music channel and website in the UK and is credited with cultivating a new generation of Black British musicians.
