In an interview to be screened on BBC2, he told Louis: ‘I just had this feeling of being overwhelmed, of thinking I can’t handle this.
‘I’d often just crash out and get super depressed or super withdrawn and reclusive and just disappear – I’d just stay at home and smoke a lot of weed.’
According to The Mirror, said he went through a period when he wasn’t in the ‘best mind space’ because he was trying to balance being ‘the greatest artist’ with his family life and trying to be a role model in his community.

The couple, who split in 2019, have remained friends, despite Stormzy previously confessing to ‘disrespecting’ and being ‘inconsiderate’ towards her.
In exclusive quotes obtained by The Sun, the musician spoke candidly to Louis, 52, and admitted that he had learned some tough lessons following their split.
Stormzy went on to hint at mistake that he made during his four-year relationship with Maya, adding that he never wished to feel that way again.

The notoriously private couple dated for four years but in 2019 were said to have ended their relationship in order to focus on their careers.
A representative for Maya confirmed the breakup to MailOnline at the time, with the Radio 1 DJ said to have already moved out of the rapper’s home.
Maya’s representative told MailOnline: ‘I can confirm the relationship has ended and Maya has separated from Stormzy.’
It’s not the first time that Stormzy has spoke of his relationship with Maya, having declared that he still loves her ‘wholeheartedly’ and wants to marry and have children with his ex-girlfriend in the future.

In 2020, he admitted he has ‘never loved anyone how I’ve loved her’ in a new YouTube interview with Charlamagne tha God.
‘She’s a f***ing G, bro,’ the grime star said of his ex. ‘I love her wholeheartedly. I’ve never loved anyone how I’ve loved her.’
The radio host asked if he thought the pair could ever reconcile, to which he responded: ‘I would love for that to happen but I don’t know…
‘I would love to be the man who she needs, I would love to do all the things that make this work. I want to marry her, I want to have her children.’
The pair previously dated between 2015 and 2019, and are now said to be giving their romance another go.
