I've been a fan of Lady Sovereign from her very first single, even as she was trying really really hard to be offensive and in-your-face. Needless to say, as she was trying to be like that, the press (in the UK) was not kind.
This song, which talks about the depression of being slammed publicly, is from her 2nd album, and heavily samples The Cure. She's clearly playing in a genre not typically attempted by short, white British girls. Having said that, she clearly understands hip-hop and performs it well, yet still remains true to herself and her own style. I enjoy her, and I hope you do too!
Also, Lady Sov, if you are reading this, please come to the States and tour. I'd come see you!
