I’ve been following Little Simz‘s moves for a little minute now. She’s always been one of the most promising artists since I first caught on to her at a “Style’n’Substance” showcase put on by the lovely folk at Sistova, but she’s come on leaps and bounds since then. In my eyes she’s fast become the UK’s leading female and a real contender to take the crown (irrespective of gender) when it comes to laying a formidable debut to capture the next generation of UK Hip-Hoppers. (No pressure on her shoulders at all! lol). Simz is more than capable and that’s a view shared across the board by many plaudits internationally, so to box her into being representative of UK or even representative of women in hip-hop doesn’t do her artistry justice. She’s ill beyond those caveats.
Having just dropped her debut EP project “E.D.G.E.” (Check out the stream below), I’m sure she’ll enjoy another wave of praise at home and abroad, and I hope you join the list of people waiting for a full length project from the emcee.
