One of my favorite records of all time is Lauren Hill’s “Miseducation of Lauren Hill” and, for the first time in a long time, I’m hearing some of that strength, soul and charisma emerge from another female artist. Her name is Sampa and she just dropped a ridiculous mixtape.
Produced by Godriguez, “The Great Mixtape” is a beautiful collision of old school and new school and it serves as a flawless introduction for the Zambian-born rapper. Her poetry does not get compromised and the soundscape captures a vivid imagination that only an artist like Sampa would have.
I’m going to leave you with the first track I heard, which has some Lauren Hill influences, but go to her soundcloud and find a lot more of her music, that draws from the likes of FKA Twigs, Erykah Badu and more.
Enjoy “Blue Boss” below
