A man who was bullied as a child for his stammer has overcome his speech impediment by becoming a rapper thanks to the help of Kanye West.

Chris Heath, 20, began going to speech therapy classes from the age of six but nothing seemed to help his condition which left him unable to get his words out.

He carried on going to the classes for four years but it was only when Chris came across rap music that his stammer started to improve.

And he thanks his main idol American rapper Kanye West for helping his speech improve which enabled him to become a rapper himself.

Chris, known as his stage name BiG HEATH, said: “Kanye West raps a lot about his ego and how he never lets his haters get him down.
