You probably know him more for grilling politicians, but now John Humphrys is doing a different type of spitting on his mic.

John Humphrys, legendary journalist and presenter of the Today programme, has offered up his take on Stormzy.

Today's 7.40am slot on the Radio 4 programme was devoted to discussing the upcoming Brit Awards with journalist Peter Doggett.

Doggett noted the lack of hiphop or grime artists, treating the audience to a bit of Stormzy as an example of the type of less "safe and bland" artists that should be acclaimed by the awards.

After the clip, Humphrys, 72, treated the airwaves to a quick freestyle and now radio will never be the same again.

Listen to the extraordinary clip, below:

Naturally, Twitter had no idea what to do with this information (and neither do we):

What a grime to be alive.
