Watch: Indoor skydiving with London grime MC Novelist (and his mum)
Laurie Charlesworth took to the (indoor) skies to spend some quality time with the rapper

Skiddle asked 23-year-old London grime MC Novelist 'if he could do any activity, what would it be?'.
He said indoor skydiving.
So we took him indoor skydiving.
Hailing from Lewisham, Novelist took the scene by storm from early doors, scoring a nomination for 2014's Best Grime Act at the MOBO Awards aged just seventeen. Since then, he has continued to display both a winning gratitude for life (he says he almost died when he was thirteen) and a fierce energy, not only through releases like Novelist Guy and Inferno, but also through his radio persona via a BBC Radio 1xtra residency.
A shining example of how to use your talent and platform to promote positivity, it was a pleasure to spend the day with ‘Nov’, and his lovely manager, also his mum.
