Performing Black, a freestyle track that charts the difficulties of black Britons, he added a newly written final verse that began: “It is racist, whether or not it feels racist, the truth is our prime minister’s a real racist / They say – ‘you should be grateful, we’re the least racist’ / I say the least racist is still racist.”
He also attacked tabloid coverage of Meghan, the Duchess of Sussex, and paid tribute to London Bridge terror attack victim Jack Merritt. Other performers included Harry Styles, Stormzy, Burna and Billie Eilish, who sang new Bond theme ‘No Time to Die’
