The world’s next great rapper

If 2021’s ‘Sometimes I Might Be Introvert’ inched British rapper Little Simz closer to stardom, then her December 2022 album ‘NO THANK YOU’ has sent her into orbit. Kendrick Lamar,  Timbaland, and OutKast’s Andre3000 have long been admirers of Simbiatu “Simbi” Ajikawo’s effortless flow and open-hearted lyricism, but the last two years have seen her burst onto the collective consciousness. Her dextrous rap mixes social commentary and personal narrative with anthemic refrains, and feels tailor-made for a headlining slot at Sónar by Night. The next great rapper you discover at Sónar might just be Little Simz.
