An elderly man is causing a social media storm after rapping to British grime artist 'Stormzy' in the busy shopping quarter of Carnaby Street, London.

People posted videos of the busker as he shifted from side to side, talking his way through the MOBO award-winning rapper's lyrics.

"Tell my man shut up" he said with conviction, in a quintessentially English manner, amusing the growing crowd of onlookers.

Drawing a laugh from the huge audience which gathered during the performance, the old rocker took the attention all in his stride as he took on the song.
