Little Simz - The Square (Video)


We've been mucking in over at the much better read, much better written Potholes In My Blog over in New York from time to time of late. For the sake of economy, we'll likely double up whatever's relevant over here. On that note:

For whatever the MOBO Awards are worth, it would be a shame if Barz Simson didn’t take home best newcomer. She may not have drawn the same attention as category rival FKA Twigs or have an anthem on her hands like Meridian Dan (who strictly speaking is no newcomer, popping up on lost grime classics). 

But the North Londoner has been hard at work the last four years and is coming into her own. The Square (and Age 101:DROP 2, the EP where you’ll find this track) is yet another example of the UK rap vanguardist’s arrival. You can watch the one-shot video below.
